Quebec's elections office has some advice for people who try to get their names added to the voters' list and are turned away.
Spokesman Denis Dion says they should get together as much documentation as possible about their lives in Quebec and try again.
Dion says electoral officers have to use their judgement when they have suspicions about certain cases, and that judgement can sometimes be faulty.
"Nobody can say that the judgement is 100 per cent good all the time," Dion told CJAD's Tommy Schnurmacher this morning. "Sometimes you have contestable decisions."
Dion says would-be voters should expect to be asked for more than just one or two pieces of identification, and that Quebec medicare cards, drivers' licenses and bank and income tax statements are all good options.
