Electors on the lists

For the three 2000 by-elections, the final voters lists, established after election day under subsection 71.32 of the Canada Elections Act, R.S.C. 1985, c. E-2, included:

Voting under the Special Voting Rules

The Special Voting Rules allow voting by special ballot, by mail or in person at the office of the returning officer. Voters using this method are split into two groups for reporting purposes.

The first group consists of electors whose names appear on separate lists:

The second group consists of resident Canadians whose names appear on the voters lists for the polling divisions, but who register to vote by special ballot because they do not wish to vote at an advance poll or on election day.
