HistoryEdit

The Lloydminster electoral district was created prior to the 1971 general election to represent Lloydminster and the surrounding area. Prior to the 1971 election, Lloydminster was part of the Alexandria electoral district.

Prior to the 1993 general election, Lloydminster was merged with parts of the former Vermilion-Viking electoral district (which had also been created for the 1971 election) to form the current district of Vermilion-Lloydminster. Since 1971, both Lloydminster and Vermilion-Lloydminster have elected Progressive Conservative MLAs.
