1924 Edmonton municipal election
The 1924 municipal election was held December 8, 1924 to elect a mayor and five aldermen to sit on Edmonton City Council and three trustees to sit on each of the public and separate school boards.
There were ten aldermen on city council, but five of the positions were already filled: Ambrose Bury, James McCrie Douglas, Joseph Duggan, James East, and James Findlay were all elected to two-year terms in 1923 and were still in office.
There were seven trustees on the public school board, but four of the positions were already filled: Samuel Barnes, Ralph Bellamy, Frank Crang (SS), and F S McPherson had all been elected to two-year terms in 1923 and were still in office. The same was true on the separate board, where Robert Crossland (SS), Paul Jenvrin, Thomas Magee, and Joseph Henri Picard were continuing.
The election was conducted using the single transferable vote system.
There were 9,477 ballots cast out of 22,298 eligible voters, for a voter turnout of 42.5%.
