Voter Turnout in Federal Elections in Canada




The following numbers represent the percentage of actual votes cast by eligible voters. In some general elections, several electoral districts were won by acclamation. In these cases, eligible voters and actual votes were not recorded. In early elections, polling took place over several weeks or even months. Furthermore, in some remote districts, votes were cast but no voters lists had been prepared. Source: Elections Canada
