By-elections September 17, 2007 – Official Voting Results


December 2007

This report deals with the federal by-elections held on September 17, 2007, in the electoral districts of Outremont, Roberval–Lac-Saint-Jean and Saint-Hyacinthe–Bagot in Quebec.

I am pleased to publish this report to satisfy the requirements of the Canada Elections Act, S.C. 2000, c. 9, and to ensure that Canadians have accurate and complete information on the by-elections. It is through such public reports that Parliament and Elections Canada make the Canadian electoral system more open and transparent.

This report presents the results of the vote, by polling division, for the September 17, 2007, by-elections, in accordance with paragraph 533(a) of the Act. Subsection 534(2) of the Act also requires the Chief Electoral Officer to report on the administration of the Office since the last such report, as well as on certain actions taken by the Office in relation to the by-elections. A report will be published in March 2008 covering these by-elections.

Information on contributions and election expenses declared by the candidates in the September 17, 2007, by-elections will be available in January 2008 at

Marc Mayrand
Chief Electoral Officer of Canada
