Press Release no. 27 - TOMORROW, MARCH 22, 2007, IS THE LAST DAY TO REGISTER ON THE LIST OF ELECTORS



    Québec City, March 21 /CNW Telbec/ - The Chief Electoral Officer of
Québec, Me Marcel Blanchet, would like to remind electors that the deadline
for electors to register on the list of electors for the general elections of
March 26, 2007 is tomorrow, March 22nd at 2 p.m. Today, March 21st,
applications for revision can be presented until 9 p.m.
    Thus, electors who would like to register on the list of electors, make a
correction to their registration or request that their name be struck off the
list must go to the office of the returning officer of their electoral
division. Note that in certain electoral divisions that cover a vast
territory, electors may have more than one office where they can file their
application.
    It is worth mentioning that any application made at the special revision
office must be accompanied by two identification documents: one must mention
the name and date of birth of the elector (e.g.: birth certificate or health
insurance card) while the other must mention the elector's name and address of
domicile (e.g.: lease or telephone bill). Furthermore, unlike the procedure
that prevails during the regular revision period, any application made during
the special revision period must be made personally by the elector.
    Electors can obtain further information on the special revision period by
contacting the office of the returning officer of their electoral division, by
consulting the Website of the Chief Electoral Officer
(www.electionsquebec.qc.ca) that contains a special section for the 2007
General Elections or by contacting the Info Centre of the Chief Electoral
Officer at the following numbers:

    418 528-0422 - for calls from the Québec City region
    1 888 ELECTION (1 888 353-2846) - for calls from outside the Québec City
    region
    418 646-0644 or 1 800 537-0644 - telecommunications device for the deaf
    (TTD)

    Finally, it is worth noting that unlike the procedure followed at the
federal level, the Québec Election Act does not allow electors to register on
the list of electors on polling day. The deadline for registering on the list
of electors is thus tomorrow, March 22nd at 2 p.m.
