To be eligible to vote, you must be registered on the electoral list!
In accordance with the Loi sur les élections et les référendums dans les municipalités, to be eligible to be registered on the municipal electoral list, you must meet the following conditions:

- be 18 years old on polling day;
September 1st in the year of a general election, or at the time of a by-election, at the date on which the writ of election is published:

A legal person (eg, incorporated or limited company) is not entitled to be registered on the electoral list and is not entitled to vote in municipal council elections but does have the right to vote in a referendum.
An elector who is not domiciled in the municipality, but who is the owner of an immovable, or the occupant of a business establishment situated on the territory of the municipality, must transmit a signed writing to the municipality asking to have his name added to the list of electors.
Persons who are co-owners of an immovable or co-occupants of a business establishment must designate from among themselves, by means of a power of attorney sent to the municipality, only one person who can be entered on the list of electors.

At the polling station, you must establish your identity by showing one of the following documents:

- your Canadian passport;
