Abstract: In this study, our objective is to identify the determinants that mobilize the Canadian citizens to turnout. Using the fixed and the random effects panel data techniques, we examine which are the political and the socioeconomic factors that affected the electoral participation in the last eight Canadian federal elections which were held during the period 1988-2011. We find that all the factors, with the exception of the population density, affect the voter turnout rate either in a positive or in a negative way.
