Jour d'élections scolaires au Québec Élections scolaires Photo : ICI Radio-Canada L'avenir et le rôle des commissions scolaires sont en jeu aujourd'hui alors que se tiennent les élections scolaires au Québec qui, traditionnellement, suscitent peu d'intérêt dans la population. Le ministre de l'Éducation, Yves Bolduc, a laissé entendre le mois dernier que le taux de participation à ces élections pourrait être crucial pour l'avenir des commissions scolaires. En 2007, seuls 7,9 % des électeurs s'étaient prévalus de leur droit de vote. L'exercice consiste à choisir de nouveaux commissaires scolaires, mais pour la première fois, les électeurs pourront aussi voter pour les présidents des commissions scolaires, qui étaient auparavant désignés par les élus. Tout citoyen québécois de plus de 18 ans peut voter à condition d'être inscrit sur la liste électorale et de présenter une pièce d'identité valide une fois sur place. Les bureaux de vote seront ouverts de 10 h à 20 h. L'organisation du scrutin a coûté 20 M$, cette année.
