File contains one page of the "List of Voters for the year commencing 1st January, 1886, the Polling District No. 1, Ward 1, North in the Town of Port Hope, in the Electoral District of the East Riding of the County of Durham, Ontario." The List contains the names of those eligible to vote, their place of residence, post office addresses, "Nature of Qualification" (real property, son of owner, etc.), Municipality, Location (street address), Title to Qualifying Property (tenant or owner), Name of Parent, if the voter is qualified as a son of a farmer or other owner of real property also nature of parents title to real property.

Voters list is only partial, listing 130 names from A to M. The reverse has pasted on "1886 List of Voters PORT HOPE" and written above in blue pencil "Port Hope Mechanics Institute". It appears that this list which was used for the 1886 provincial election was used as a reference list of some sort for the Institute to draw members
