1. Filing nomination forms
Persons wishing to run for one of the 103 elected positions, whether for a political party or as an independent candidate, must meet the required conditions and submit their nomination by the deadline set by Law.
2. Notice of Entry on the List of Electors
Preparing the list of electors is a very important operation. This is the stage at which all electors are requested to check whether their name is on the list of electors at their correct home address. If you wish to exercise your right to vote, it is your responsibility to ensure that your name is on the electoral list.
You can also verify your registration here.
There are three easy ways to check your registration:
- online, using the Check your entry on the list of electors service (as of September)
- on the Notice of Entry you will receive by mail during the election period, along with the Voter’s Manual
- by contacting us.
3. Additions and modifications to the List of Electors
If you find you are not entered on the list of electors or if there’s an error in your entry, you must contact the Board of Revisors of the electoral list.
4. Voting by mail
In 2021, persons who were unable to move about for health reasons, who were in isolation due to COVID-19 or who were residing in an eligible establishment or residence could apply to vote by mail.
5. Reminder card
During the week of October 25, you will receive a reminder card that includes the names of the candidates, the dates of election days and advance polls, and the voting locations.
6. Advance polls (voting early)
If you’re not available to vote on polling day, you can vote at the advance polls.
7. Election days
In 2021, the election days were November 6 and 7.
8. Tabulation and results
On the final election day, after the polls close, the tabulation or counting of votes begins. Preliminary results for each elected position are published on the Élections Montréal website.
