CHAPTER III
TRANSITIONAL, MISCELLANEOUS AND FINAL PROVISIONS
93. If an order or writ instituting an election or referendum is issued before the enumeration referred to in section 2 is conducted, the enumeration shall take place before the poll.
However, the name of every person who, on the day of the poll, is a qualified elector may be entered on the list of electors for the polling subdivision in which the person is domiciled.
The time limits applicable to an enumeration provided for in the Election Act (chapter E-3.3) as it read before being amended by this Act apply to such an enumeration.
The poll shall be held on the seventh Monday following the issue of the order or writ if the order or writ is issued on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday, and on the eighth Monday if the order or writ is issued on any other day. If polling day falls on a holiday, the poll shall be held on the following day.
Section 429 of the Election Act and section 429 of Appendix 2 to the Referendum Act (chapter C-64.1), as they read before being replaced by this Act, apply to the election or referendum, as the case may be.
1995, c. 23, s. 93.
94. If an order or writ instituting an election or referendum is issued while the enumeration referred to in section 2 is being conducted, the enumeration shall be continued.
However, the name of every person who, on the day of the poll, is a qualified elector may be entered on the list of electors for the polling subdivision in which the person is domiciled.
The poll shall be held on the fifth Monday following the issue of the order or writ. If polling day falls on a holiday, the poll shall be held on the following day.
1995, c. 23, s. 94.
95. If an order or writ instituting an election or referendum is issued between the end of the enumeration and the start of the revision referred to in section 2, the list of electors established during the enumeration shall be used for the revision to take place before the poll.
The poll shall be held on the fifth Monday following the issue of the order or writ. If polling day falls on a holiday, the poll shall be held on the following day.
1995, c. 23, s. 95.
96. If an order or writ instituting an election or referendum is issued while the revision referred to in section 2 is being conducted, the revision shall end.
The list of electors established during the enumeration referred to in section 2, with the modifications made to it during the revision before it ended, shall be used for the revision to take place before the poll.

99. Notwithstanding section 8, the chief electoral officer shall maintain a registry of electors outside Québec until 31 May 1997, containing the names of the electors who were registered on 16 June 1995 and of every elector entitled to exercise his right to vote outside Québec who has, since that date, filed an application therefor in accordance with sections 293 and 293.1 of the Election Act (chapter E-3.3).
The chief electoral officer shall strike from the registry the information relating to electors who have returned to Québec or who have been outside Québec for more than two years except, in the latter case, electors to whom the second paragraph of section 293 of the said Act applies.
1995, c. 23, s. 99.
100. Before striking from the registry of electors outside Québec the name of an elector who was registered in the registry on the date of assent to this Act and who has been outside Québec for more than two years, the chief electoral officer must communicate with the elector in order to verify whether the second paragraph of section 293 of the Election Act (chapter E-3.3) applies to that elector.
If such is the case, the elector may apply for maintenance in the registry of the information necessary for the exercise of his right to vote outside Québec, if he supports his application with the proof of posting referred to in the third paragraph of section 293.1 of the said Act.
1995, c. 23, s. 100.
101. If an order or writ instituting an election or referendum is issued before 31 May 1997, the electors registered in the registry referred to in section 99 on the date referred to in section 293.5 of the Election Act (chapter E-3.3) may exercise their right to vote.
