Assisted voting

Assisted voting is for electors in some hospitals or nursing homes that have nominated as a 'declared institution'. In this case, an ECQ official will visit to help voting take place.

If you have a disability, can't get a postal vote and are not in a declared institution, you may be able to telephone vote. Click here to see if you are eligible.
