Each school board, whether it is a French-language or an English-language board, has its own list of electors. In all cases, the elector is entered on the list of electors of the electoral division in which his domicile is located.
The list of electors of a French-language school board is made up of all of the persons registered on the permanent list of electors who are domiciled on the territory of this school board.
The list of electors of an English-language school board is made up of all of the parents who have children attending a school of this school board and who reside on its territory. This list of electors also contains the names of the persons who have formally chosen to vote in the English-language school board whether or not they have a child who attends an English-language school, as well as those electors whose child has completed his studies in this school board.
Indeed, since 2006, a parent whose child has completed his studies in an English-language school board is deemed to have chosen to be entered on the list of electors of that school board and to vote there.
