Vandermeer first ran for the Progressive Conservatives in the 1997 Alberta general election when he lost to Liberal Ed Gibbons. He ran against Gibbons again in the 2001 Alberta general election, this time defeating him by a thin margin.
Vandermeer was defeated after serving only one term in the 2004 Alberta general election in a very tight race against Liberal Dan Backs. He returned to the legislature in the 2008 Alberta election, this time representing the riding of Edmonton-Beverly-Clareview, by defeating incumbent New Democrat Ray Martin.
The 2012 Alberta general election resulted in another close loss, this time to NDP candidate Deron Bilous.
