MONTREAL — It is complicated for Quebec anglophones to ensure they are on the proper school board electoral list.
In theory, if your children are registered in an English school board, you should automatically be registered to vote in that board.
But by default, voters in Quebec are added to lists for the French school boards in their region, so it’s always a good idea to check.
How to make sure you’re eligible to vote in two easy steps:
Call the Director General of Elections at 1-888-ELECTION (1-888-353-2846) to see if you’re registered.
If you are not on the right voter list, fill out a form to get registered by contacting your school board from the list below.
- English Montreal School Board
- Lester B. Pearson School Board
- Sir Wilfrid Laurier School Board
- Riverside School Board
- Western Quebec School Board – Electoral List Form – English
- Central Quebec School Board – Electoral List Form
- New Frontiers School Board – Electoral List Form
- Eastern Shores School Board – please contact directly

School board elections will be held across the province on November 2. Residents must be 18 years old and over to be eligible to vote.
