210.29.2. In the case of a regional county municipality in respect of which the by-law provided for in section 210.29.1 has effect, the election for the office of warden must be held in the same year as the general election in all the local municipalities referred to in that section.
The provisions of the Act respecting elections and referendums in municipalities (chapter E-2.2) that relate to the election of the mayor, except the provisions of Chapters III and IV of Title I, apply to the election of the warden to the extent that they are consistent with such an election, with the necessary modifications and the specific modifications mentioned in Schedule I.
The purpose of the specific modifications is, among other things, to distribute the functions related to the election of the warden between the returning officer of the regional county municipality and the returning officer of each local municipality whose territory is comprised in that of the regional county municipality. The modifications shall establish in particular that the returning officer of the regional county municipality must draw up the list of electors, issue the notice of election, receive nomination papers, and declare elected the candidate who obtained the greatest number of votes, and that the returning officer of each local municipality must revise the part of the list of electors of the regional county municipality that concerns the territory of the local municipality and hold the vote in that territory.
