Vermilion-Lloydminster is an Alberta provincial electoral district, located in east-central Alberta. The district was created in 1993 and is mandated to return a single member to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta under the first past the post method of voting.

The largest communities in the constituency are Lloydminster, Vermilion and Viking.

History[edit]

The electoral district was created in the 1993 boundary redistribution out of the old Lloydminster and Vermilion-Viking districts.

Under the Alberta electoral boundary re-distribution of 2004, the constituency is bounded by the Saskatchewan border to the east, and clockwise from there is bounded by Battle River-Wainwright, Fort Saskatchewan-Vegreville, Lac La Biche-St. Paul and Bonnyville-Cold Lake. The district remained completely unchanged in the 2010 distribution.[1]

The riding was created in 1993 and has been returning Progressive Conservative MLA's with large majorities since it was created. The first member was Steve West who had previously served as MLA for Vermilion-Viking for two terms beginning in 1986. While representing this riding he served a number of cabinet portfolios in the government of Ralph Klein. West retired from office in 2001.

The second representative of the riding is Lloyd Snelgrove who was first elected in 2001 and has since served three terms in office. Snelgrove briefly served as Minister of Finance under the government of Ed Stelmach. He decided to leave the Progressive Conservative caucus on January 27, 2012 and sit is an Independent after becoming disenchanted with Premier Alison Redford.[3]

Richard Starke won the riding for the Progressive Conservatives in the 2012 election, and was one of only two PC MLAs to remain outside of Calgary after the results of the 2015 election.

On November 19, 2004 a Student Vote was conducted at participating Alberta schools to parallel the 2004 Alberta general election results. The vote was designed to educate students and simulate the electoral process for persons who have not yet reached the legal majority. The vote was conducted in 80 of the 83 provincial electoral districts with students voting for actual election candidates. Schools with a large student body that reside in another electoral district had the option to vote for candidates outside of the electoral district then where they were physically located.
