Under the Quebec Election Act, students are given the day off to vote. This means all instructional activities, including classes, tutorials, labs and studio sessions are cancelled on April 7.

Make-up day – April 14

Your professor will advise you whether your class or other academic activities, normally held on April 7, will be rescheduled on April 14.

You can vote on campus before election day

As a Concordia student, if you are eligible to vote, you will be able to cast your ballot on the downtown campus before the election – even if you are registered in another electoral district.

These polling stations will be designated for students only and will be located in the atrium of the J.W. McConnell (Library) Building. See below for the schedule of dates and hours.

To vote, you must be registered on the list of electors. Visit or to verify whether you are on the list.

If you are not on the list, or if the information about you is incorrect, you can register to vote or correct the information, in person only, at the student polling stations. You must bring two pieces of identification: one must include your name and your birth date and a second must indicate your name and address.

Schedule of designated student polling/registration

When: March 28, April 1 and 2 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
           April 3 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Where: Atrium of the J.W. McConnell (LB) Building, 1400 De Maisonneuve Blvd. W., Sir George Williams Campus

Please note: If you live in the Westmount-Saint-Louis riding, and have been notified that your polling station will be located at Concordia, you will also be able to vote at the advance polls on March 30 and 31 and on election day.
