Voters List Quality Studies
Elections BC regularly conducts quality studies of the provincial voters list to inform, plan and report on list coverage and currency. Coverage and currency are the two main indicators used by Canadian electoral agencies to assess the overall quality of a voters list at a given point in time.
Coverage is a measure of the comprehensiveness of the voters list and is calculated as the number of registered voters divided by the estimated number of eligible voters, expressed as a percentage. Currency is a measure of how up‐to‐date the voters list is and is estimated as the percentage of registered voters who are registered at their current address.
