Election or Referendum Signs

​​The Ministère issued a directive on election and referendum signs to ensure road user safety. It applies to municipal, provincial and federal elections, as well as by-elections and referendums.

This directive presents:

  • the rules to comply with when installing signs during an election or referendum period,
  • the locations where signs are permitted,
  • the aspects to take into consideration so as not to compromise road safety.

The directive also provides for periods when these signs may or must be installed or removed.

For any questions on election or referendum signs, please contact the service centres’ staff at the Ministère’s territorial branches.
