Evolo Condos in Montreal
Advance polling stations are open Sunday and Monday for the September 4 election.
I’ll be voting today myself, as I’ll be working as a scrutineer on the day – and we don’t get time off to vote!

Vote early, vote often! One station had a line 6-8 deep, but not mine. Took 2 minutes, in-and-out.
I wonder what the turnout numbers for advance polling tend to mean for the incumbents vs the others.
It was pretty crowded at my advance polling station too. Surprising for such a hot day and given that advance polls are usually not quite so conveniently located as regular ones.
I hope this early turnout means a higher level of voting than we’ve seen recently, although it mostly may mean people are voting now because they plan to extend a holiday weekend out of town.
Can just anybody go do the advance poll? You don’t have to sign up or anything?
We voted today and one of our scrutineers sported a crucifix,but that’s ok cause it’s “Quebec secular”
Yes, walkerp. They don’t ask why. If you got a card saying you’re on the list, it will include an address for the advance polling location as well as for the regular one.
You should complain, Stephen. They decided red squares had to be kept out of polling stations, then crucifixes should be kept home too.
I could be wrong, but I think it’s candidates who are not allowed to wear the red squares in polling stations.
I’ll have to see for myself when I vote.
Scrutineers are strictly forbidden from wearing squares along with any other indication of political opinion. But in scrutineer training we were not told to ask voters to remove any signifiers from their persons, although the poll director who greets people at the door may have instructions along those lines that I don’t know about.
If you plan to vote on the 4th you *must* register by Aug. 30.
