Elections Quebec 2022 | Who did your neighbors vote for?


The duty mapped the detailed results of the last general election, which were posted online by Elections Quebec a few days ago. Which political party has won popular favor in your part of the country? The answer is in our interactive map.

It shows the results not only in the 125 ridings, but also in some 16,450 polling subdivisions across Quebec. This interactive map allows you to see who voted for whom in each of them. Just enter an address or postal code in the search bar at the top of the map or zoom in here and there. In Montreal, a voting section is equivalent to a city block.

The Coalition avenir Québec is expanding its borders. Despite the breakthroughs of the Conservative Party of Quebec, the political party of François Legault obtained, on October 3, the greatest number of votes in 64% of the polling subdivisions, compared to 60% in 2018. On polling day, the CAQ won the most votes in all the polling subdivisions of 11 ridings, compared to two for the Quebec Liberal Party (Jacques-Cartier and Robert-Baldwin), one for Quebec solidaire (Gouin) and one for the Parti Quebecois ( Matane-Matapédia), notes The duty after having dissected the data from Elections Quebec. The colors of the PLQ and the PQ – which exchanged power from 1970 to 2018 – are erased even more from the map.

These results do not take advance voting into account since in this case the ballot papers of several voting sections are mixed together in the same box. Moreover, the advance polling rate varies widely from one riding to another, with a minimum of 9% in Ungava and a maximum of 41% in Louis-Hébert. The ballots of citizens who voted in the offices of the returning officers or in an educational establishment are excluded for the same reasons.

The largest proportion of caquists

Saint-Jules (Beauce-Nord) has lost the title of the most caquist corner of the country in Quebec in favor of the Des Oiseaux district, in Saguenay (Chicoutimi). More than 80% of voters on rue des Jaseurs, des Cigognes, des Condors and des Albatros supported the CAQ candidate, Andrée Laforest, on October 3.

In 2018, nearly 85% of the population of the municipality of Saint-Jules, in Beauce, had voted for the CAQ. It was more than anywhere else in Quebec. But over the past four years, many voters in Saint-Jules have turned their backs on the CAQ in favor of the PCQ. The proportion of caquists has shrunk considerably, from 85% to 47%. The Conservative vote rose from less than 1% in 2018 to 46% in 2022. The Saint-Julois are no different from other Beaucerons: they were torn between the CAQ and the PCQ on election day. The most conservative polling division is in Beauce, in Saint-Honoré-de-Shenley, a 35-minute drive from Saint-Jules. More than two-thirds of voters (68%) lined up behind Éric Duhaime (153 voters out of 225) the 3rd of October.

Moreover, the most liberal end of the country is not in Montreal, but in the archipelago of the Magdalen Islands. Indeed, 85% of voters in Grosse-Île, which is home to many descendants of Scots, supported Dominique Anglade’s team. The street corner with the greatest solidarity is in the riding of Gouin — a quadrilateral formed by the streets Saint-Denis (West), Saint-Vallier (East), Bélanger (South) and Jean-Talon (North) — which is represented in the National Assembly by QS since the maple autumn: Françoise David (2012-2017) and Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois (in office since 2017). The voters of Saint-Jean-de-Cherbourg, they massively support the PQ and their deputy Pascal Bérubé.

Near and far from the Horne foundry

In Rouyn-Noranda–Témiscamingue, the data highlights the deep division of citizens on the issue of the Horne smelter, which benefits from an exemption to emit up to 33 times more arsenic per cubic meter than the standard of Quebec, established at 3 ng/m3. Former solidarity MP Émilise Lessard-Therrien has made it her main battleground since the publication this summer of an open letter from doctors in the region who denounced the consequences of the release of heavy metals into the air on health. neighboring residents.

The young farmer entered the National Assembly in 2018 after campaigning on the need to fight against climate change. She had then won 58 polling divisions, a number that has shrunk this year to just 28, which is concentrated near the smelter compared to the last ballot. Only one section has crossed the 50% mark for QS votes in the riding, and it is one of the three residential sections near the foundry (#110). All of this sheds new light on this victory for the CAQ, which is instead taking a stand for a dialogue with Glencore and the reduction of heavy metal emissions over the next five years.

The split vote of the natives

Indigenous community trends are outlined by nation. The Attikamek, Cree and Innu communities voted overwhelmingly for QS. In Mingan (Innu), in the riding of Duplessis, 45 of the 46 voters who voted on October 3 did so in favor of Québec solidaire. This is also the case for 94% of the 132 voters of Waswanipi (Cree), the community from which comes the one who was a solidary candidate in Ungava, Maïtée Labrecque-Saganash.

Kateri Champagne Jourdain, the first woman from a First Nation elected to the National Assembly, only partially convinced the members of her community on the North Shore, Uashat Mak Mani-utenam. Two of the three polling divisions that correspond to their territory opted for QS, against only one for the CAQ.

The 15 Inuit communities, all located in the riding of Ungava, unanimously voted for the Liberal Party, represented by the former mayor of Kuujjuaq, Tunu Napartuk. Dominique Anglade was the only party leader to travel to Nunavik during the campaign, calling on the Crees and Inuit to vote in large numbers. However, it was Denis Lamothe of the Coalition avenir Québec who won the seat.

Conservatives outside Quebec

The Conservative Party of Quebec was declared the winner in 79 polling subdivisions in Beauce-Nord, or 2.1 times more than the CAQ (37) and 91 polling subdivisions in Beauce-Sud, or 2.2 times more than the CAQ (42). The caquistes Luc Provençal (Beauce-Nord) and Samuel Poulin (Beauce-Sud) however managed to be re-elected: the first with 202 votes in advance; the second with 428 votes in advance. The PCQ won popular favor in a few places outside the greater Quebec City region, starting in English-speaking municipalities on the island of Montreal such as Hampstead and Côte-Saint-Luc. That said, in d’Arcy McGee, the Conservatives claimed victory in 14 of the riding’s 148 polling divisions.

Certain sectors of Chomedey, in Laval, also saw a jump in support for the PCQ. A good majority (55%) of voters in the area bordering 100th Avenue between Notre-Dame Boulevard and Normandy Boulevard supported Éric Duhaime’s team.

The PCQ also did well north of Shawinigan, where it won the plurality of votes on polling day. In fact, 34% of voters on the shores of Lac à la Perchaude, Lac Barbotte and Lac du Canard voted in favor of the PCQ, compared to 27% for the CAQ, 17% for the PQ, 16% for QS and 5% for the PLQ. Otherwise, their neighbors, including those living on the shores of Lac des Piles, first voted for the CAQ candidate, Marie-Louise Tardif.

The Steamroller Pascal Bérubé

If there is a stretch of PQ blue on the political map, it is largely thanks to Pascal Bérubé. In fact, the voters of Matane-Matapédia once again rallied behind the PQ, including those of English-speaking who have taken up residence in Métis Beach. There, voters preferred the PQ (63%) to the CAQ (15%), to QS (8%), to the PCQ (8%)… and to the PLQ (6%). But it is the voters of Saint-Jean-de-Cherbourg, who are the most PQ of all (84%), where no one voted for the PLQ on October 3, according to data from Elections Quebec.

Gaspésie has largely changed from “PQ blue” to “CAQ blue”. The voters of New Carlisle (Bonaventure), where René Lévesque grew up, on October 3 supported first the PCQ (34%), then the PLQ (31%) and the PQ (12%).

A part of eastern Montreal, on either side of Highway 25, is also « PQ blue » to the delight of PQ leader Paul St-Pierre Plamondon who, after the withdrawal of the solidarity candidate who stole leaflets , managed to beat the CAQ MP – and candidate for his own succession – Richard Campeau. Proponents of convergence between the PQ and QS, which could in particular take the form of non-aggression pacts in certain key constituencies, will perhaps see in this the demonstration that the absence of one of the two « independence, progressive and ecologists » of a race complicates things for the CAQ.

Alternative breakthroughs in Montreal

Bloc Montreal (BM) managed to carve out a place on this map by winning the most votes from a section of the riding of Saint-Laurent, in Montreal — nearly half of the 178 ballots submitted on October 3. The party led by Balarama Holness intended to promote the interests of Montrealers by ensuring greater financial autonomy for the metropolis, in particular by ensuring that 20% of the QST generated in the Montreal region remain in the metropolis and by taxing vehicles entering the island with $5. BM, however, did not make further inroads into the top position; he came 5th in four polling sections of Marguerite-Bourgeoys and one section of Robert-Baldwin.

The Canadian Party of Quebec (PCQ-CPQ) lost its bet. Colin Standish launched the party this year, which includes the province’s bilingualism in its six fundamental principles, in response to the nationalist turn of the Liberal Party of Quebec. His message, however, did not resonate with the English-speaking communities: the PCQ-CPQ entered the top five only four times, in the polling divisions of Robert-Baldwin, D’Arcy McGee and Saint-Laurent, three ridings in West of Montreal.
