History

The riding of Vaudreuil was created in 1829.

Ten years later, it merged with the riding of Soulanges and was renamed Vaudreuil-Soulanges.

It remained so until 1988, when it reverted back to Vaudreuil.

Vaudreuil is a Liberal stronghold, voting red since 1988.

It was represented by Liberal Daniel Johnson Jr., who went on to become premier of Quebec in 1994.
