March 15, 2020 by-election – SUNDAY’S ELECTION CANCELLED

In accordance with government guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and the instructions we received today from the Ministère des Affaires municipales et de l'Habitation, Montréal’s returning officer, Me Yves Saindon, is cancelling the by-election scheduled for Sunday, March 15, 2020, in the Saint-Léonard-Est electoral district to fill the office of city councillor. Close to 22,000 voters were invited to come and cast their ballot at one of the 11 voting locations across the district.

More information on the rescheduling of the election will follow.

Élection Montréal would like to thank its partners and those who worked on the election for their involvement and commitment, as well as the voters concerned for their understanding during this exceptional situation.
