Quebecers are voting today in municipal elections, casting ballots in 1100 cities and towns.
Polls opened at 10 and close at 8.
Montreal and Laval will get new mayors following scandal-plagued leadership; mayors quit and so did their interim replacements.
Minutes after casting his own ballot, Projet Montreal's Richard Bergeron called upon all Montrealers to do the same.
"This day is an opportunity for Montreal and what they, (voters), have to do is to vote. I invite every elector to go to vote today because it is very important for the future of Montreal", said the mayoral candidate.
Bergeron cast his ballot just after polls opened.
Some of his opponents in the municipal election, Marcel Cote and Melanie Joly, were also out this morning casting their ballots.
Take the voter registration form you received in the mail as well as some ID, including a driver's license, health card or Canadian passport.
Voter turnout across the province in 2009 was 45 per cent.
Municipal Affairs Minister Sylvain Gaudreault has urged Quebecers to get out and vote.
