Vote counting on November 3 - The Chief Electoral Officer authorizes the counting of advance poll ballots to start at 6 p.m., under certain conditions
Quebec City, November 1, 2013 – In the wake of the advance poll last Sunday, which featured high voter turnout in certain Québec municipalities, the Chief Electoral Officer has used the special powers conferred upon him by law to allow, under certain conditions, counting of advance poll ballots to start at 6:00 p.m. on November 3, 2013. We should recall that under the Act respecting elections and referendums in municipalities (AERM), vote counting must begin at 8:00 p.m. after polling stations close. In cases where one or several ballot boxes used during the advance poll contain more than 300 ballots, the returning officer may, when appropriate, allow vote counting to begin two hours earlier. This reduces the wait for final results of elections.
