The 30th general election of Alberta, Canada, will elect members to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta. It will take place on or before May 31, 2019.

The Election Act fixes the election to a three-month period, between March 1 and May 31 in the fourth calendar year after the preceding election day which in this case was May 5, 2015. However, this does not affect the powers of the Lieutenant Governor to dissolve the Legislature before this period.[1]

This will be the first general election held after the Alberta New Democratic Party defeated the Progressive Conservative government in 2015 - an election which marked only the fourth change of government in the province's history. It will also be the first election contested by the United Conservative Party, formed in 2017 by a merger of the Progressive Conservatives and the Wildrose Party, and the first since 2001 to feature only one major right-of-centre party.
