HOW DO I VOTE?
Polling stations are open now and close at 8 p.m. on Nov. 7.
Stations are located across the island. To find the one for your district, enter your postal code and address number into this page on the Elections Montreal website.
It will give you the location of your nearest polling station and a list of candidates in the running.
According to Elections Montreal, all polling places are universally accessible.

To be eligible to vote, you must:

AM I REGISTERED TO VOTE?
You can check that you are registered to vote on the Elections Montreal website.
Paper notices were also mailed out to Montreal addresses in early October. If you're registered at your current address, your name should appear in the top right corner of the mailed page.
If your name doesn't appear there, or in the online system, it may be too late. The deadline to register to vote was Oct. 18.
