Ottawa Electors' Lists

Tucked away in a corner of the Ottawa Public Library's Ottawa Room are a series of oversize bound volumes of municipal electors' lists. According to the OPL catalogue they are for 1976, 1978, 1980, 1982, 1985, 1988, and 1991. The books, organized by ward, poll, street and house number, give first and last name.
A more limited selection of lists for Kanata are at the Beaverbook library.
These nicely compliment the collection Canada, Voters Lists, 1935-1980 provided by Ancestry.ca where the lists for 1979 and 1980 are in most cases unusable owing to text bleed-through on the image.
