Edmonton municipal election, 1934
The 1934 municipal election was held November 14, 1934 to elect a mayor and six 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 four of the positions were already filled: Margaret Crang, Harry Ainlay, Ralph Bellamy, and James Findlay were all elected to two-year terms in 1933 and were still in office. Rice Sheppard was also elected to a two-year term in 1933, but had resigned in order to run for mayor; accordingly, Athelstan Bissett was elected to a one-year term.
There were seven trustees on the public school board, but four of the positions were already filled: Albert Ottewell, Frank Crang, Walter Morrish, and Sidney Bowcott had all been elected to two-year terms in 1933 and were still in office. The same was true of the separate school board, where Charles Gariepy, T Malone, Thomas Magee, and J Tansey were continuing.
There were 27683 ballots cast out of 45589 eligible voters, for a voter turnout of 60.7%.
