Electoral history

The electoral district was created in the 2004 boundary redistribution by combining the old Edmonton-Highlands and Edmonton-Norwood electoral districts. The first election in the district was won by NDP leader Brian Mason who won a landslide with over 60% of the popular vote.

Mason was re-elected in the 2008 general election against former MLA Andrew Beniuk. He won a slightly reduced majority but still won over half the popular vote.

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.
