We have voters' lists from 1886 to 1992, located in the Reading Room on microfiche and in Storage. Use voters' lists to verify Vancouver residence of men and women who were eligible to vote. What you need to know about voters' lists
  • Names that have been excluded from the voters' lists include:
  • Individuals under 21 (1886 – 1970)
  • Individuals under 19 (since 1971)
  • Individuals of First Nations, Chinese, Japanese, and Indian background (1886 to 1948)
  • Since only owners were eligible to vote on financial bylaws, owners and residents have been separated.
  • Lists are arranged in sets by year, then by wards or polling district, and then alphabetically by name.
  • Exploring voters' lists can be time-consuming.
