He first attempted to seek election as a Member of Parliament at the Middlesex riding in the 1968 federal election but was defeated by Jim Lind of the Liberal party. Frank made another attempt there in the 1972 general election and succeeded that time. However, he only served in the 29th Canadian Parliament and with changes to electoral district boundaries, he campaigned in the new Middlesex—London—Lambton riding and lost to Liberal candidate Larry Condon. Bill Frank made one more unsuccessful attempt to return to Parliament in the 1980 election at London—Middlesex, but again a Liberal candidate, Garnet Bloomfield, won.
