Vancouver East is known as New Democratic Party stronghold; the NDP and its Co-operative Commonwealth Federation predecessor have won all but two elections in the riding since the riding's creation in 1933. In the 2006 federal election, the New Democratic Party won a higher percentage of the vote in Vancouver East than in any other riding in the country: 56.6%.

The area was traditionally known as Little Italy, but has progressed into an ethnically diverse community of artists, activists, and business owners. In recent years, the area has been negatively affected by an influx of hard drugs and the problems associated with their use.
