Your vote can count

This letter is in response to Lucienne Miner’s letter, titled “When your vote can’t count” in the November 20 issue. First of all, the municipality is not obligated to send out notices of registration or absence to each household. A public notice is sufficient. It is a means of courtesy that the municipality chooses to send out individual notices.

This letter is in response to Lucienne Miner’s letter, titled “When your vote can’t count” in the November 20 issue. First of all, the municipality is not obligated to send out notices of registration or absence to each household. A public notice is sufficient. It is a means of courtesy that the municipality chooses to send out individual notices. Also, it is the responsibility and duty of the      elector to make sure that his or her name is on the electoral list.
As for the permanent voter’s list, the municipality has nothing to do with that list. The Director General of elections is solely responsible for the permanent list, and obtains the names from the Société des Automobiles du Québec SAAQ or the Quebec Health Card.
Should you wish to contact the Director General of Elections for more information, their telephone number is 1-888-353-2846.
