A “private intervenor” must be a qualified elector. It could also be a group that is not constituted into a legal person, made up of physical persons the majority of whom are qualified electors. The physical persons of such a group work together to toward a common goal.
When the private intervenor is a group, the members must designate a representative from the electors of the group.
A private intervenor cannot become a member of a political party during the election period.
To obtain an authorization, it is necessary to complete and submit the appropriate form that is available in the “Forms” section of the of the Directeur général des élections du Québec’s Web site.
For a provincial election, the form must be submitted to the returning officer of the electoral division of the domicile of the elector who is making the application.
