For candidates – Nomination and pre-authorization
A. Candidate authorization
A potential candidate must seek authorization from the Director General of Elections for Quebec to start fundraising and to open a bank account.
Kindly contact the Returning Officer, Me Jason Prévost or his assistant for more details and to obtain the prescribed forms (DGE-1028 and DGE-1028.1) which require signatures of electors supporting your request for authorization. These must be completed and submitted either prior to or along with the completed nomination form.
The nomination period, by-appointment only, is from Friday, February 21, 2020 to Friday, March 6, 2020 as follows:
Côte Saint-Luc City Hall,

Attention: Jason Prévost, Returning Officer
Monday – Friday: From 10:30 am to 12:00 pm and 1:30 pm to 4:00 pm by appointment only.
Except Friday, March 6, 2020: From 9:00 am to 4:30 pm continuously.
Please contact Me Jason Prévost, Returning Officer, at 514-485-6800 ext. 1704 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment.
Bring your driver’s license, medicare card, duly completed authorization request (including signatures) as well as the duly completed nomination papers containing at least the following number of signatures of electors from the municipality:
For Councilor: At least 25 signatures.
It is STRONGLY advised to collect more signatures than are needed as each signature must be verified against the List of Electors.
All electors supporting a candidate’s nomination must be on the list of electors at the beginning of the election period. The information contained in the entry on the nomination form must match their entry on the list of electors. This information must be correct, complete, and legible for their entry to be counted. It is therefore possible than some signatures will be refused for the purposes of a nomination which, could lead to the inability for the Returning Officer to accept the nomination paper should the required number of valid signatures after verification not be met.
