Leduc-Beaumont is a provincial electoral district in central Alberta, Canada. The district was created in the 2010 boundary redistribution and is mandated to return a single member to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta using the plurality voting system.

History[edit]

The electoral district was created in the 2010 Alberta boundary re-distribution. It was named after the City of Leduc and Leduc County and the Town of Beaumont. It was created from the old electoral district of Leduc-Beaumont-Devon which was abolished when the town of Devon was transferred into the new district of Drayton Valley-Devon. The other major change from the old riding was the move of land within Camrose County to Battle River-Wainwright.[1]
