Electoral Chair’s Seminar – October 4th
Analyse des Cahiers de Scrutin du Bas-Canada
Jean-François Godbout – Université de Montréal
This project aims to construct and analyze an exhaustive database of poll books from Lower Canada. In total, this cumulative file should include the votes of more than 80,000 voters between 1792 and 1844. The objective is to study electoral behavior and public opinion during this period, in addition to offering new perspectives to better understand the development of political parties and nationalism in Quebec. This data will be made public through the BAnQ website, thus benefiting university researchers, historians and genealogists.
