Big whopping majority

There are 308 ridings in Canada. The current 308-riding electoral map has been in place now for four general elections (2004, 2006, 2008, 2011).

In two of those 308 ridings, the largest (preliminary) number of advance voters was seen in 2004 (Timmins–James Bay and Yorkton–Melville). Thirty-two ridings had their recent high-water advance vote in 2006, an election in which the government changed. Just six saw the high-water mark in 2008, the election with the dubious distinction of having the worst turnout ever.

In 2011, 268 of the 308 ridings have had record advance poll turnout for ridings in the current electoral map.

Conversely, just five ridings have scored record low advance-poll turnout in the instant election: Saskatoon–Humboldt, Red Deer, Vegreville–Wainwright, Surrey North, and Nunavut.
