Who may vote?

Where and when can you vote?

To exercise your right to vote, you must be an elector of the municipality AND have your name entered on the list of electors of the municipality.

The requirements to be an elector and to be entitled to be entered on the municipal list of electors are as follows:

Any person who is of legal age on polling day and, on September 1, 2021:

  • is a Canadian citizen;
  • is not under curatorship;
  • has not been convicted of an offence that constitutes a corrupt electoral practice;

AND

  • has either been:
  • domiciled in the territory of the municipality, and for at least 6 months, in Québec; OR
  • for at least 12 months, either:
  • sole owner of an immovable in the territory of the municipality provided that he is not domiciled in the territory of the municipality and has submitted to the municipality an application for entry on the municipal list of electors;
  • sole occupant of a business establishment in the territory of the municipality provided that he is not the owner of an immovable elsewhere in the territory of the municipality, is not domiciled in the territory of the municipality and has submitted to the municipality an application for entry on the municipal list of electors;

NOTE: the sole owner of several immovables or the sole occupant of several business establishments must register at the address of the immovable or the business establishment having the greatest property or rental value.

  • undivided co-owner of an immovable or co-occupant of a business establishment in the territory of the municipality provided that he has been designated by means of a power of attorney signed by the majority of co-owners or co-occupants who are electors of the municipality on September 1, 2021. A person who already is entitled to be entered on the list of electors in his capacity as a domiciled person, owner of an immovable or occupant of a business establishment cannot be designated co-owner. A person who already is entitled to be entered on the list of electors in his capacity as a domiciled person, sole owner of an immovable, sole occupant of a business establishment or designated co-owner of an immovable cannot be designated co-occupant.

At the beginning of October you will receive a notice identifying all the electors entered on the electoral list at your address. If you are not entered on the electoral list, or if you notice an error, you may make an application for entry, striking or correction before the board of revisors.

In the case of an application for entry concerning a person domiciled in the territory of the municipality, the applicant must indicate the former address of the domicile of the person whose entry is requested and must present two documents, one of which indicates the name and date of birth, and the other the name and address of the domicile of the person whose entry is requested.

The list of electors will be available for consultation and the applications for entry (domiciled electors only), striking, or correction may be submitted to the board of revisors at the dates and at the place indicated under the section IMPORTANT DATES.
