Important Notice

Any electoral district map available on this site is an administrative version, for your sole convenience. The official versions of these maps are kept at Town Hall, in the official copy of By-Law 268. In the event of a contradiction between an administrative version and the official version, the official version shall prevail.

Board of revisors

By October 15, 2021, a notice of registration for the electoral list will be forwarded by mail: read it with care. This notice states the name(s) of electors registered at your address and the location of the board of revisors.

If you do not receive the registration notice or if corrections must be made to it, you will have to present yourself before the board of revisors to make an application for entry for a correction or deletion to the electoral list. It is important to check this information since you must be registered on the electoral list in order to exercise your right to vote.

An Act Respecting Elections and Referendums in Municipalities sets the beginning and end of the board of revisors work period concerning the electoral list. Even though this potential period may run from October 16 to 28, 2021 for the municipal elections of 2021 and that a public notice will be published to this effect, we are advising you in advance that the board of revisors should sit on October 25, 2021 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and October 26, 2021 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
