1948 Edmonton municipal election
The 1948 municipal election was held November 3, 1948 to elect five aldermen to sit on Edmonton City Council. There was no mayoral election, as Harry Ainlay was in the second year of a two-year term. There were no elections for school trustees, as candidates for both the public and separate boards were acclaimed.
There were ten aldermen on city council, but five of the positions were already filled: Armour Ford, Harold Tanner (SS), James McCrie Douglas (SS), Charles Gariepy, and George Gleave were all elected to two-year terms in 1947 and were still in office.
There were seven trustees on the public school board, but four of the positions were already filled: Mary Butterworth (SS), George Brown, Stewart Graham, and William Morrow (SS) had been elected to two-year terms in 1947 and were still in office. The same was true on the separate board, where Weldon Bateman (SS), Joseph Gallant, Thomas Malone, and Joseph Pilon were continuing.
There were 11,665 ballots cast out of 80,369 eligible voters, for a voter turnout of 14.5%.
