It was created for the 1867 election (and an electoral district of that name existed earlier in the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Canada and the Legislative Assembly of Lower Canada). Its final election was in 1936. It disappeared in the 1939 election and its successor electoral district was Vaudreuil-Soulanges.

It was re-created for the 1989 election from the eastern part of Vaudreuil-Soulanges electoral district.

In the change from the 2001 to the 2011 electoral map, its territory was unchanged.

It was named after former governor of New France from 1703 to 1725, Philippe de Rigaud de Vaudreuil.
