You live in a residential and long-term care centre or a private seniors’ residence

Summary

Élections Québec teams will visit residential and long-term care centres as well as private seniors' residence so that you do not have to go to another location to vote. You may vote in the common area, if a polling station is set up there, or in your room.

In this section

Your establishment has a polling station

In the common area of several health care facilities and private seniors’ residences listed on the register of the ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux, residents may:

  • Register or make changes to their entry on the list of electors
  • Vote in the advance poll

The days and times for registering or changing one’s entry on the list of electors and for voting are posted so that residents are informed of the teams’ arrival. They will visit approximately one week before election day, according to the schedule.

If you are temporarily residing in such an institution, you must apply to vote there. Call or write to your returning officer no later than [day -14]. You must be registered on the list of electors at your home address to vote. Even if you live in another electoral division, you will vote for a candidate in your electoral division.

You are unable to get to the common area

If you are unable to get to the common area, you may request to vote in your room or apartment. Simply write or call the returning officer of your electoral division no later than [day -14]. You can also ask someone to inform the team that will be in the common area that you wish to vote in your unit, if your name is on the list of electors.

Your establishment does not have a polling station

If you are in a residence with fewer than 50 people, a palliative care home or an addiction resource, there will not be a polling station in the common area of your establishment.

If you are unable to move about for health reasons, you can request to register or change your entry on the list of electors or vote in your room or apartment. In the event of an election, full details are posted on this page.

You can still register or make changes to your entry on the list of electors and vote in your room or apartment, if you request it.

  • If you need to register or change your entry on the list of electors, ask to meet with the board of revisors. You must make this request to your returning officer, by telephone or in writing, no later than [day -14]. It will inform you of the day and time of the mobile board of revisors’ visit.
  • Ask for a team to visit your room or apartment so you can vote. You must make this request to your returning officer by telephone or in writing. Your request must be received by [day -14]. If a team visits your centre or residence so that other electors can vote, you may ask someone to inform this team that you wish to vote in your room, if your name is on the list of electors.

    In all cases, you must present one of the following pieces of identification to vote.

    Until 2:00 p.m. on [day -4], you can register or change your entry on the list of electors by going to the office of the returning officer.
