Use Voter Records to Find Someone

That’s right.  Whether your long-lost friend or relative is a Democrat, Republican, or Independent… if they vote you can find them.  Especially in an election year, most folks update their voter registration if they’ve recently moved.  This gives you a chance to pinpoint their current residential address.

Ever notice that when you move and update your voter registration, you get a jury duty summons a few months later?  This is because your updated voter information triggers the jury services department.  You’re back on the grid.  Why not use that same trigger to verify the new address of your old buddy?

On our Voter Records page, we compile links to the Registrar of Voters and Supervisor of Elections databases in as many states and counties as we can find.  You’ll see resources for voter records, registration, polling precincts & locations, absentee ballot status, and provisional ballot status.  These public databases are intended to provide you a means to check your own registration, but if you have enough information on your person, you can look him or her up too.

Let’s look at Bradford County, Florida as an example.  If you can provide the voter’s last name, birth date, and street number, this database will verify that there is a current registration matching that name and address.

Let’s be very clear: This database won’t give you a brand new address you were unaware of, but it can verify an address you may suspect is your subject’s.  So if you’ve run a people search report and you have a list of potential addresses for your person, you can run each through voter registration databases to find the current match.

Finding Canadian Records

Some visitors to our site have asked if we provide access to public records from Canada.  The answer is YES!  Not only that, but the Royal Canadian Mounted Police helped us put our Canada public records directory together.

To start, use the “Worldwide” drop-down menu at the top right corner of our home page.  Then click on Canada Public Records.  The lower half of that page displays many public record resources nationwide in Canada.  The upper half of the page has links to Canadian databases organized by type of record.  Corporations & Businesses is one example.

To search for databases by area, click on the link for “Province & Territory.”  There you will find resources for Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Nunavut, Ontario, Prince Edward Islands, Quebec, Saskatchewan, and the Federal Territory of Yukon.

You can drill down further.  By clicking on the Alberta link, you will arrive at a page with databases for that province, along with links to the sub-directories for cities and counties within Alberta.  Use our links to find accountants in Alberta, or utilities in Lloydminster, or property records in Strathcona County.

If you are looking to do a “people search” in Canada, be advised that most internet companies offering people searches only cover the United States.  This includes the services that we advertise.

Why are there no people searches for Canada?  The local and national Canadian governments do not resell Canadian citizen address data to third parties and private companies.  In the United States, people search data comes from a variety of public record sources such as property and voter registration records, which are then resold to online companies.

If you are looking to locate someone in Canada or confirm an address, start with the property databases in Canada.

Looking for criminal records in Canada?  Criminal record searches can only be ordered from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.  For more details, see this page.
