1930 Edmonton municipal election
The 1930 municipal election was held November 12, 1930 to elect a mayor and five aldermen to sit on Edmonton City Council and four trustees to sit on the public school board, while three trustees were acclaimed to the separate school board. This was the first election to be held in November; where elections had previously been held on the second Monday of December, beginning in 1930 they were held on the (presumably milder) second Wednesday of November to encourage voter turnout.
There were ten aldermen on city council, but five of the positions were already filled: Herbert Baker, Ralph Bellamy, Arthur Gainer, Dan Knott, and Rice Sheppard (SS) were all elected to two-year terms in 1929 and were still in office.
There were seven trustees on the public school board, but three of the positions were already filled: Frank Crang (SS), Arthur Cushing, and Albert Ottewell (SS) had all been elected to two-year terms in 1929 and were still in office. S T Bigelow had also been elected in 1929, but had resigned; accordingly, S A Dickson was elected to a one-year term. Similarly, there were only three vacancies on the seven member separate school board, where Charles Gariepy, Thomas Magee, A J Ryan, and J Tansey (SS) were continuing.
There were 13,869 ballots cast out of 41,962 eligible voters, for a voter turnout of 33.0%.
