Notes[edit]

  1. ^ There was no Premier of Alberta from May 23 until May 31, 1943, due to the death of Premier Aberhart.
  2. ^ The United Farmers of Alberta won the 1921 election without a leader. Greenfield was made leader immediately afterward, and this election is counted as a win for Greenfield.
