Who may vote in the elections at the Eastern Townships School Board (ETSB)?
To be able to exercise your right to vote in the October 29, 2017 by-election, you must be registered on the ETSB list of electors and meet the following conditions on polling day:
Be 18 years of age or over;
Be a Canadian citizen;
Be domiciled on the territory of the School Board and have been domiciled in Quebec for at least six months;
Not to be under curatorship;
Not be deprived of their election rights;
Be registered on the electoral list of the ETSB based on the following criteria:
- having a child admitted to the Eastern Townships School Board;
- in the case of an elector who has no children in a public school, having deposited a Notice of Choice to be added to the list of the Eastern Townships School Board.
A parent is therefore automatically on the list for the school board if his/her child attends.
There is no direct link between voting and paying taxes to ETSB.
