The 1905 municipal election was held December 11, 1905 for the purpose of electing a mayor and four aldermen to sit on the Edmonton City Council, as well as five public school trustees and five separate school trustees. There were eight aldermen on city council, but four of the positions were already filled: John R. Boyle and Thomas Bellamy were both elected to two-year terms in 1904 and were still in office (although Boyle, elected MLA in the 1905 provincial election, was to resign in May 1906), while Robert Mays and David Latta - who had been appointed to replace the resigned Charles May and Kenneth McLeod, respectively - were also still in office.

Voter turnout[edit]

There were 993 ballots cast out of 1900 eligible voters, for a voter turnout of 52.3%.
