As the election looms ever closer, more and more stories of English-speaking students being denied the right to vote are emerging.
Even students who have been here for years say they were told by revision officers that they are ineligible because they either don't meet the residency criteria or that the officers simply suspect they don't meet it.
Their decision is final. And students are wondering what they have to do to be able to vote.
McGill Ph.D candidate Sean Beattie has lived in Montreal for over five-and-a-half years. He pays taxes, owns a dog and is hoping to start a company here.
But he can't vote, according to the St-Henri-Ste-Anne riding revision committee
He said he was told by the revision official that he couldn't vote while he was a student and that the official had doubts that Beatty really a resident of Quebec - even though he had all the documentation proving that he is, in fact, a resident.
It didn't matter though: all the official has to do is harbour doubts about a registrant's eligibility to deny it.
He secretly recorded the exchange and shared it with CJAD.
"It really seems like a problem that we have this arbitrary system that you can't appeal, that they can arbitrarily deny you the right to vote," he said.
Three Parti Québécois MNAs - Bertrand St-Arnaud, Nicole Leger and Leo Bureau-Blouin - held a press conference this morning denouncing suspected voter fraud in several Montreal ridings, including St-Henri-Ste Anne. They accused students from outside Quebec are trying to steal this election.
But Elections Quebec told CJAD that there are in fact fewer registered voters in two of the three affected ridings than in 2012.
