Following declining voter turnouts throughout the 1990s, the voter turnout at the Canadian general election of 2000 (61 percent) was the lowest on record. It is in this context that Elections Canada developed a research project aimed at evaluating the opinions and attitudes of non-voters, and to provide additional insight into the reasons for non-voting at federal elections. The objective of this research is to assist in further defining and comprehending the phenomenon of non-voting. As part of this project, Decima Research Inc. was commissioned to conduct a survey of Canadians who were eligible electors at the time of the 2000 Canadian general election, including equal proportions of voters and non-voters. The survey covered a variety of socio-demographic, attitudinal, and contextual factors, in order to explain the phenomenon of non-voting in Canadian federal elections.
