Albertans vote for their school board trustees as part of the municipal general elections. A general election takes place every four years.

If you are a new candidate, congratulations on making the leap into electoral politics. If you are running for re-election or you have run before, congratulations on seeking community representation once again. You are taking the first step in an important democratic process. Our school boards are important decision-making bodies, and your desire to take part in this process is crucial for their democratic function.

Election Resources


In Alberta, citizens elect school boards to act for the legislature in their local schools and communities. School boards exist because of the belief that government – and decisions – made closest to the people being governed are the most effective. Learn more about the important role of school boards. 

School boards are:

  • Advocates for Alberta’s children
  • Champions for education
  • Partners in education
  • Strategic governors
  • Political officials
  • A bridge connecting with the community and sharing information
