Electoral participation in the April 7, 2014 general election - Stabilization of the participation rate in Québec
Quebec City, October 29, 2014 –– A study released today on the participation of Québec electors in the April 7, 2014 provincial election reveals a stabilization of the participation rate. For example, in 2014, the participation of young people reached a level comparable to the rates in 2003 and 2007. The decline in turnout of young people observed in 2008, which was reversed in 2012, did not reappear in 2014. The presence of young voters has helped stabilize the participation rate, which has generally been between 70% and 75 % since the 2003 general election.
