In a by-election, you can’t vote on your campus.
In a provincial general election, you can vote on your campus for a candidate running in the electoral division where you are domiciled if there is a polling station at your educational institution.
Only students may vote at a polling station at their educational institution.
Requirements for voting at your educational institution

Entering your name on the list of electors or changing your entry
After checking your entry, you noticed that your name is not on the list of electors or that you have to make a change of address? In that event, go to the polling station at your educational institution, where you will be able to do it all: enter your name on the list, change an entry and vote! Be sure to bring the required supporting documents.
Are you unsure what the address of your domicile? Here are a few examples.
- If you live with your parents in Chicoutimi, your mail is sent to them and the address on your driver's licence is the address of your family home, but you are temporarily residing in Montréal to attend school, you will be able to vote on your campus in Montréal for a candidate running in your electoral division in Chicoutimi
- If you have moved to Montréal and you consider your new apartment to be your principal residence, you use your new address on your income tax return and you have made your change of address, you will be able to vote on your campus in Montréal for a candidate running in the electoral division where your apartment is located.
- If you come from Ottawa and you are living and going to school in Lévis, but you intend to go back to live in Ontario and you have kept your Ontario driver's licence and health card, you will not be able to vote in Québec. You do not meet the requirements for voting.
