Voter Turnout (Federal Elections)
Voter Turnout (Percentage) in Federal Elections
Methods and Limitations
Voter turnout is calculated as the percent of eligible voters who cast a vote in a Federal Election.
The Constitution of Canada requires that federal electoral districts (FEDs) be reviewed after each decennial (10-year) census to reflect changes and movements in Canada’s population. As such, the boundaries of federal electoral districts may change over time. To track historical voter turnout across changing boundaries, the Victoria Region boundary was created by merging FEDs.
Voter turnout for the Victoria Region is calculated by adding the total number of ballots cast within all concerned FEDs, and dividing it by the total number of electors within all the concerned FEDs. The FEDs used for each federal election are:
2008 & 2011 Federal Elections: 1) Victoria, 2) Saanich-Gulf Islands, 3) Esquimalt-Saanich-Sooke, and 4) Cowichan-Malahat-Langford
2015, 2019 & 2021 Federal Elections: 1) Victoria, 2) Saanich-Gulf Islands, 3) Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca, and 4) Nanaimo—Cowichan
