Sherbrooke’s election office will be revising the list of electors on Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 18 and 19. The population is invited to check the notice of registration recently sent by mail.
If an error or omission appears on the list, the person concerned will have to appear before one of the four boards of revisors to make an application for entry, correction or removal from the list of electors. The places, dates and times are indicated on the notice sent to residents. This information also appears at sherbrooke.ca/election, under the “Where to vote” button. If a person is not registered on the list of electors, he or she will not be able to vote on polling day. This is an important difference between federal and municipal elections. It is therefore important to do this now.
To add a registration, two documents must be presented: one containing the name and date of birth of the person registering and the other containing the name and address of the person’s residence (identity documents, passport or electricity bills, etc.).
If no corrections are required, it is important to keep this notice as the reminder card. The polling place and polling division is on the back of the card. This document will facilitate access to the polling station.
For more information, contact the returning office at 819 822-6100.
For residents in other municipalities who need to confirm they are registered to vote, the returning officer for all municipalities is available through the website at www.electionsquebec.qc.ca in the section ‘checking
