The Act respecting School elections prohibits the creation of political parties. However, candidates with common interests can join together in a ticket recognized by the returning officer.
For this purpose, a ticket must submit to the returning officer, by the stipulated deadline, a written application for recognition. The name of the ticket, if there is one, appears under the candidate's name on the ballot paper.
The period during which a person may file his duly completed nomination paper along with the appropriate documents at the office of the returning officer begins on the 40th day and ends at 5 p.m. on the 35th day preceding that set for the poll. Be sure to check the days and times when the office of your returning officer is open.
Please note that the Ministère de l’Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport (MELS) is responsible for applying the Act respecting school elections. The next school elections are scheduled for November 2011.
