In the Magdalen Islands, it was barely 3:30 p.m. when the team of volunteers from solidarity candidate Jean-Philippe Déraspe had already almost finished installing the partisan posters.

The PCQ was also quite quick to pull the trigger in this county when the photo of Donald Gagnon was clearly visible.

In Côte-du-Sud, the volunteers of the Liberal Party of Quebec were hard at work since the photos of Sylvain Lemieux were on the poles.

Remember that no rule prevents parties from installing their signs before the election is called.

However, according to the electoral law, the placards must be removed at the latest 15 days after the day of the vote.
