Press Release No. 2 - By-election of September 24, 2007 - POSTAL BALLOT FOR ELECTORS TEMPORARILY ABSENT FROM QUEBEC



    QUEBEC CITY, Aug. 22 /CNW Telbec/ - The Chief Electoral Officer of
Québec, Me Marcel Blanchet, would like to inform electors of the electoral
division of Charlevoix that they can register for the postal ballot right away
if they will be outside Québec on polling day or during the advance poll
scheduled on September 16 and 17, 2007.
    Electors concerned by this measure are those who have been temporarily
absent from Québec for two years or less and who intend to return. During the
by-election, electors may vote in the postal ballot as long as they are
entered on the list of electors outside Québec. The registration form can be
downloaded from the Website of the Chief Electoral Officer at the following
address: www.electionsquebec.qc.ca.
    It is worth noting that the two-year limit does not apply to electors who
are transferred outside Québec while working for the Québec government, the
government of Canada or an international organization covered by the Election
Act. Neither does it apply to the spouse of the elector concerned or his
dependents who are qualified electors. In addition to the required documents,
electors transferred outside Québec have to provide an attestation of their
transfer outside Québec.
    Me Blanchet would like to make it known that electors who have been
absent from Québec for two years or less may register at any time in order to
take advantage of the postal ballot during general or by-elections or during
referendums.
