Vote in the 2024 municipal election. Your vote matters!

The next municipal elections will take place on June 9, 2024, in Gatineau as elsewhere in Quebec. Voting is an essential component of municipal democracy.

When you vote, you become part of the process of electing your city's new mayor. Electors in the Carrefour-de-l'Hôpital district will also be invited to vote for their next councillor.

Who can vote?

In order to vote in Gatineau, you must:

  • Be at least 18 years of age on election day;
  • Be a Canadian citizen;
  • As of the date of the notice of poll:
    • Be domiciled in Gatineau;
    • Have resided in Quebec for at least six months.
  • Not be under curatorship;
  • Not have been convicted of election fraud; and
  • Be on the list of electors.

Anyone whose domicile is not in Gatineau who, as of the date of the notice of poll, has owned a building or occupied a business establishment in Gatineau for at least 12 months prior to that date may be included on the list of electors under certain conditions. That person must submit a written request to the Returning Officer to be included on the list of electors. Their name may only appear once on the list of electors.

Application for registration

Co-proprietors of a building and co-occupants of a business establishment whose domicile is not in Gatineau must designate, in a signed document submitted to Ville de Gatineau, one person whose name will be included on the list of electors.

Power of attorney

A legal person, such as a corporation or a union, may not be included on the list of electors.

How do you know if you are on the list of electors?

The directeur général des élections du Québec keeps a list of electors based on the information obtained from its partners. Every person is responsible for ensuring that their name appears on that list.

Between May 11 and 22, 2024, everyone who is registered will receive a notice of registration in the mail. If you receive that notice, you will be able to vote on June 9. However, if you do not receive it, or if the notice indicates No registered voter at this address, that means you are not on the list of electors at this address. In that case, you must appear before the board of revisors to register.

Board of revisors

If you are not on the list of electors, or if any of your information is incorrect or missing, or if your name or someone else's is on the list when it should not be, you must appear before the board of revisors on May 21, 22 and 23 to correct the information contained in the list of electors. Bring two valid pieces of ID, one with your name and date of birth, the other with your name and address. A spouse, parent or other person living with you may appear on your behalf.
