Make sure you’re registered to vote in the Montreal municipal election

Unregistered Montrealers have until Oct. 18 to visit the Board of Revisors in their borough.

The Montreal municipal election is coming up on Nov. 6 and 7, and many Montrealers are finding out that they’re not registered to vote. If you’ve received your notice of entry from Élections Montréal by mail and your name appears on that letter, you are already registered to vote. If you received the letter “To the occupant” — with no names in fine print to the right of that — or didn’t receive it at all, you must appear before the Board of Revisors in your borough by Oct. 18.

The Board of Revisors is open till 10 p.m. today (Thursday), from noon till 7 p.m. on Friday, from noon till 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday and from noon till 7 p.m. on Monday. You need to bring two documents, one of which indicates your name and date of birth and the other your name and current address. If you’ve moved, you must provide your former address.

Note that a spouse, relative or roommate can submit an application to the Board of Revisors in person on your behalf, so only one person per household needs to do this.
