Alberta Simulations

This page shows simulations of past Alberta elections that use DMP to calculate the outcome. In addition to using a district threshold of 5% and a reserve factor of 10%, the simulations treated Alberta as a single region.

2019 Alberta Election

This simulation was produced by merging districts to create an 88 seat Legislative Assembly. Since Alberta had an odd number of districts in this election, the largest riding (Peace River) was given an extra MLA.

The district level results can be viewed here.

Alberta 2019 - District Representation by Party
Under SMP, note that the fraction of districts a party is represented in is equal to the fraction of seats the party has won.

2015 Alberta Election

This simulation assumed that each district was given an additional representative. Of course, if DMP is used in future elections, districts would more likely be amalgamated than given extra representatives. However, this choice does not have a significant impact on simulation results.
