    If I have applied for Postal Voting can I still vote early instead?

      There is no information on the ECQ website about cancelling a postal vote application. If you have successfully applied for a postal vote, your ballot papers will be mailed to you and you should fill them in and send them back ASAP.

    You can only vote once. So if you vote early, when your postal vote comes, tear it up and put it in the rubbish bin. You could use the postal vote and hand it into the polling booth and that is still legal or post it as normal. So long as you only vote once.
