Quebec general elections
October 1, 2018
The 42nd Quebec general election is tentatively scheduled for October 1, 2018 to elect members to the National Assembly of Quebec.
Under the province’s fixed election date law, passed in 2013, “the general election following the end of a Legislature shall be held on the first Monday of October of the fourth calendar year following the year that includes the last day of the previous Legislature”, setting the date for October 1, 2018. However, the chief electoral officer can change the election date in the event of a natural disaster. Furthermore, the Lieutenant Governor can call an election sooner should the premier request one, or in the event the government is dissolved by a motion of no confidence. Such a dissolution is unlikely as the current government has a majority.
