Last day to register to vote if you'll be outside the province

Today is the last day to register with Quebec's director-general of elections if you are planning to be out of the province in the week between the opening of advance polls and April 7.

You will need to download and fill out a form from the web site of the director-general of elections — on which you'll be required to provide an address where a ballot can be mailed to you.

And you will need to do that by the end of the day — the deadline for that returned form to fall into the hands of the elections office is midnight tonight.

Anyone who is a qualified voter — a Canadian citizen 18 years of age or older, and who has resided in Quebec for 12 months before the day they left — is eligible.

For everyone else, there are two days of advance polls available on Sunday, March 30 and Monday, March 31. In addition, you can cast your vote directly at the office of the returning officer in your riding on five other days — March 28, 29, April 1, 2 and 3.

    Having provided the required documents to vote from out of the province , I received a four paragraph letter advising me of my next course of action. COMPLETELY IN FRENCH. Being bilingual raises the bar and remains an asset to winning this election!
