Drumheller-Stettler is a provincial electoral district (riding) for the Legislative Assembly of Albertamarker, Canadamarker.

Political history

The riding was created during the 2004 Alberta general election as a merger between Drumheller-Chinook and the eastern half of the Lacombe-Stettler riding.

The historical ridings that formed Drumheller-Stettler have been a Progressive Conservative strong hold in recent decades. Former Deputy Premier Shirley McClellan won by a substantial margin in the 2004 provincial election. The Alberta Alliance Party also gave one of the strongest showings in the province here. In that same election the Liberals also failed to field a candidate here, keeping them from achieving a full slateShirley McClellan resigned her seat in the legislature on January 15, 2007, the same day that former premier Ralph Klein resigned his. A by-election was called for 12 June 2007.

The by-election saw a significant shift in support for the opposition parties with the re-emergence of the Liberal party to take second place. The Alberta Alliance and NDP fared the worst, both retaining the same candidates from the general election dropping from second and third to fifth and last respectively. The Progressive Conservatives held the vote at a reduced percentage. Former governing party Social Credit made impressive gains jumping from last to third place, and Independent John Rew also made a strong showing.
