Histoire administrative

The Office of the City Clerk was responsible for overseeing the administration of civic elections. One of the duties was to keep track of eligible voters through voters' lists, which were created for every municipal election until the practice was discontinued in 1995 due to costs. For reasons of efficiency, the civic census and voter enumeration was done at the same time.

Between 1896 and 1968 civic elections were held according to the following schedule.

  • 1896-1929 annually on the 2nd Monday in December
  • 1930-1943 annually on the 2nd Wednesday in November
  • 1944-1951 annually on the 1st Wednesday in November
  • 1952-1963 annually on the 3rd Wednesday in October
  • 1964-1968 every 2nd year on the 3rd Wednesday in October
  • Since 1971 elections have been held every 3rd year on the 3rd Monday in October
