1933 Edmonton municipal election
The 1933 Edmonton municipal election was held November 8, 1933 to elect a mayor and five aldermen to sit on City Council and four trustees each to sit on the public and separate school boards.
There were ten aldermen on city council, but five of the positions were already filled: Charles Gibbs, John Wesley Fry, James Ogilvie, James East, and John McCreath were all elected to two-year terms in 1932 and were still in office.
There were seven trustees on the public school board, but three of the positions were already filled: Mrs. E G Ferris, Frederick Casselman, and Samuel Barnes had all been elected to two-year terms in 1932 and were still in office. The same was true of the separate school board, where Adrien Crowe (SS), J O Pilon, and W D Trainor were continuing.
There were 21,730 ballots cast out of 44,603 eligible voters, for a voter turnout of 48.7%.
