Title: La province de l’Île-du-Prince-Édouard : une figure d’exception au Canada en matière de participation électorale

I try in this study to understand the why turnout is so high in Prince-Edward-Island in comparison with the other Canadian’s provinces. First, I am analyzing the average voter turnout in the provinces in the last 20 Canadian’s federal election. I then analyze turnout at the riding level for 2011, matching data from the official electoral and from the Canadian census.
