Edmonton (provincial Electoral District)
The EDMONTON PROVINCIAL ELECTORAL DISTRICT existed in two incarnations from 1905 - 1909 and again from 1921 - 1955, with the city (small as it was in former times) broken up into multiple constituencies in the other time-periods. The district was created when Alberta
Alberta
became a province, to encompass residents of the city of Edmonton on the northside of the North Saskatchewan River For a time, it was one of three multi-member constituencies in the province's history, the others being Calgary and Medicine Hat. Three methods of electing representatives were used over the years. First past the post election of a single member was used in 1905 and subsequent by-elections to 1921. Block voting (voters able to cast as many votes as there were seats, that is 2) was used in 1909 and 1913. The constituency was divided into two single-member constituencies for the provincial election of 1917: Edmonton East and Edmonton West . The adjacent constituency of Edmonton South had been renamed from the old constituency of Strathcona. These three districts merged to form the Edmonton constituency in 1921, and block voting was established in 1921, to elect five members in the single constituency

First Past The Post
A FIRST-PAST-THE-POST (abbreviated as FPTP, 1STP, 1PTP or FPP) voting method is one in which voters indicate on a ballot the candidate of their choice, and the candidate who receives most votes wins. First-past-the-post voting is one of several plurality voting methods. It is a common, but not universal, feature of electoral systems with single-member electoral divisions ; in fact, first-past-the-post voting is widely practiced in close to one third of the world's countries. Some notable examples include the United Kingdom , the United States , Canada , India and most of the colonies and protectorates either currently or formerly belonging to these countries

Single Transferable Vote
The SINGLE TRANSFERABLE VOTE (STV) is a voting system designed to achieve proportional representation through ranked voting in multi-seat organizations or constituencies (voting districts). Under STV, an elector (voter) has a single vote that is initially allocated to their most preferred candidate and, as the count proceeds and candidates are either elected or eliminated, is transferred to other candidates according to the voter's stated preferences, in proportion to any surplus or discarded votes. The exact method of reapportioning votes can vary (see Counting methods ). The system provides approximately proportional representation, enables votes to be cast for individual candidates rather than for parties, and—compared to first-past-the-post voting —reduces "wasted" votes (votes on sure losers or sure winners) by transferring them to other candidates. STV is the system of choice of groups such as the Proportional Representation Society of Australia

(which calls it QUOTA-PREFERENTIAL PROPORTIONAL REPRESENTATION), the Electoral Reform Society

in the United Kingdom

and FairVote in the USA (which promotes a variant called ranked choice voting )

Manning led the Social Credit Party to its ninth consecutive majority government , winning 55 of the 65 seats in the legislature, despite getting less than 45% of the popular vote. This proved to be an ominous sign for the party; it had not won less than half the popular vote since 1955 . The once-moribund Progressive Conservatives , led by young lawyer Peter Lougheed , emerged as the main opposition to Social Credit. They won over a quarter of the popular vote and six seats, mostly in Calgary and Edmonton

Despite losing close to half of the share of the popular vote they had won in the 1963 election , the Liberals managed to increase their number of seats from two to three as a result of the decline in the Social Credit vote. Voters also decided upon the adoption of daylight saving time , in a province-wide plebiscite

Alberta
. The Social Credit Party , led by Ernest C. Manning , won its eighth consecutive term in government, winning roughly the same number of seats in the legislature and share of popular vote that it had in the 1959 election . Some Social Credit supporters were so confident of their party's chances that they talked of winning "63 in '63", i.e., all 63 seats in the legislature in the 1963 election. They fell short of this goal, but still had an overwhelming majority, reducing the opposition to only three MLAs in total. Indeed, as a share of the overall seats available, this represented Social Credit's greatest victory in its 36-year reign. Much of the opposition vote shifted away from the Progressive Conservative Party , now led by Milt Harradence , resulting in the party losing its sole seat. The Liberal Party was a partial beneficiary of the PC Party's decline, but picked up only one additional seat, for a total of two, despite winning almost 20% of the popular vote
