Casting: screening of submissions

The majority of the actors self submitting for casting calls are located in areas that make it impossible for them to participate in the project.
I recently put out a call for a project based in Vancouver, Canada. Unfortunately, I was hardly able to use the IMDBPro Casting service because of the time it took to figure out which actor was based in Vancouver (or able to relocate to Vancouver). Having had this problem in the past, my most recent posting included a note in the breakdown specifically asking actors to only submit if they are located in Vancouver. This didn't work. I guess actors are not reading the breakdown, but just quickly hitting submit to any role they fit regardless of the location.

Would it be possible to have the actor click a specific button to confirm their availability for the location rather than just having the location listed on the breakdown page? Maybe this would help the actors be more selective.
