Montreal voters could be allowed to mail in ballot

Montreal voters could be allowed to mail in ballot:

MONTREAL: ­ Voters out of town for the next municipal election will likely be able to mail in their ballots. A resolution by the city’s executive committee calls for people inscribed on the voter’s list, but outside of the city for an election, be allowed to vote by mail. The resolution follows a law passed by the provincial government to allow cities to adopt mail-in voting.

The city council must now vote on the resolution.

The resolution is particularly significant for the city of Montreal, because property owners have the right to vote, and many live outside the city.
