Results of the 1970 PEI general election.

The Prince Edward Island general election, 1970 is notable if only because it is one of the more uneventful elections in the history of a province coloured with unique electoral events. The incumbent Liberals were able to win here, gaining a total of 6.8% vote on the Tories, who dropped by the identical amount, as only the two parties ran any candidates in both the 1970 and 1966 elections.

Jean Canfield, the first woman ever elected to the Legislative Assembly of Prince Edward Island, was a victorious candidate in First Queens in this election.
