Message from the Returning Officer

On November 5, 2017, the citizens of the City of Westmount will elect a new council for a four-year term. Pursuant to the Act respecting elections and referendums in municipalities, as Returning Officer, I am responsible for ensuring the preparation and proper conduct of the election.

Our municipality is divided into eight electoral districts. Thus, you will be asked to elect not only Westmount’s Mayor but also a councillor for the district in which you reside.

To be able to exercise the right to vote on November 5, 2017, you must ensure that your name is entered on the electoral list.  That list will be filed on or about October 6, 2017, and revised October 17 and 18, 2017.

A notice of revision of the electoral list will be mailed to you prior to the period designated for the revision of the electoral list.  If you find any errors or omissions in the inscription of the names and address on the notice of revision, you may appear in front of the Board of Revisors and make an application for entries, corrections or strike-offs to the electoral list.

As in past years, in order to exercise your right to vote, the identity of every elector will  be established as required by the law.

The right to vote is the very expression of democracy. I sincerely hope that you will ensure that your name, if you qualify to vote, is on the electoral list and that you will exercise your right to vote.

Mtre Martin St-Jean
Returning Officer for the City of Westmount
