From [jour -21 au jour -4], go to the office of your returning officer.

The notice of entry that you will receive by mail at the beginning of the election period indicates the location, dates and hours of operation of the office.

Note: you must register before [jour -14] if you wish to vote in advance on [jour -8] or [jour -7].

Normally, addresses are listed as of [jour -31].

If you register your name on the list of electors at the following dates and times, you can also vote in advance. Please note that voting starts half an hour later than the registration. It also ends one hour earlier, except on [jour -4]

They can also request a change in your entry. They will have to present your supporting documents as well as their own.

After [jour -14], only the elector themselves can file an application for registration or change to the list of electors. Please note: if you register on the list of electors during this period, you will not be able to vote during the advance polling days ([jour -8] and [jour -7]), but only during polling days at the office of the returning officer and on election day.

If you are moving

During an election period, if you move more than two weeks before the election, you must vote at the polling station of your new residence. To do this, you must change your address at the revision office assigned to your new address.

To apply for registration on the list of electors, or to make a change to your entry information, you must visit the revision office. A parent, your spouse, or a person living with you may make the request for entry or make a correction on your behalf. To register, you must present two pieces of identification.

For the location, days and hours of operation of your revision office, see the notice sent by the returning officer of your English-language school board.
