Press Release no 6 - By-election of September 24, 2007 - Electors of the Charlevoix Electoral Division May Take Advantage of the Special Revision and the Advance Poll



    QUEBEC, Sept. 12 /CNW Telbec/ - The Chief Electoral Officer of Québec, Me
Marcel Blanchet, would like to remind electors who are interested that they
can take advantage of the special revision and the advance poll for the
by-election of September 24, 2007, in the Charlevoix electoral division. The
special revision will take place from September 12 to 20, 2007, while the
advance poll will be held on September 16 and 17, 2007.

    The special revision

    Electors who were unable to take advantage of the regular revision period
have a last opportunity, starting today, to register on the list of electors,
make a correction to their entry or ask for their names to be struck off. To
do so, they must go to the special revision office situated at 74 rue
Ambroise-Fafard (Hôpital de Baie Saint-Paul) Wing B, 1st floor, on September
20, 2007. The special revision office is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p. m., Monday
to Friday and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
    Any application for entry filed at the special revision office must be
accompanied by two identification documents, one of which must mention the
elector's name and date of birth while the other must mention his name and
domiciliary address. Furthermore, unlike the procedure that was used during
the regular revision period, the application must be filed by the elector in
person.
    Finally, Me Blanchet would like to remind persons who register on the
list of electors during the special revision period that they can exercise
their voting right only on polling day, i.e., on September 24th, and that, as
a result, they cannot vote in the advance poll.
    Furthermore, it is important to note that, unlike the procedure that
prevails during federal elections, 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 September 20, 2007, at 2 p.m.

    The advance poll

    The advance poll in the Charlevoix electoral division will be held on
Sunday, September 16th and on Monday, September 17th between 9:30 a.m. and    
8 p.m.
    Every elector who would like to vote in the advance poll must establish
his identity after providing his name and address to the deputy returning
officer by presenting one of the following documents: health insurance card,
driver's license, Canadian passport, certificate of Indian status or Canadian
forces ID.
    To receive the address of the polling station to which they are assigned,
electors are invited to consult the notice that was recently mailed to them.
They may also consult the special section devoted to the by-election on the
