1921 Edmonton municipal election
The 1921 municipal election was held December 12, 1921 to elect a mayor and seven aldermen to sit on Edmonton City Council and four trustees to sit on the public school board. F A French, Paul Jenvrin, Thomas Magee, and Joseph Henri Picard were acclaimed to two-year terms on the separate school board.
There were ten aldermen on city council, but three of the positions were already filled: Joseph Adair, James Collisson, and Valentine Richards were all elected to two-year terms in 1920 and were still in office. William Campbell McArthur had also been elected to a two-year term, but had resigned in order to run for mayor. Andrew McLennan had also been elected to a two-year term only to resign. In order to fill these vacancies, Izena Ross and Kenneth Alexander Blatchford were elected to one-year terms.
There were seven trustees on the public school board, but three of the positions were already filled: W H Alexander, E T Bishop, and William Rea had all been elected to two-year terms in 1920 and were still in office.

The 1921 election was the first in which a woman - Izena Ross - was elected to city council.
There were 10943 ballots cast out of 33256 eligible voters, for a voter turnout of 32.8%.
