It’s settled: I’m going to run as a candidate in the next election. I’m tired of hearing the parish priest preach about what’s right and wrong. He’s encouraging people to vote for candidates who promote conservative values.

I think I have a good chance of winning the election. Because of my profession of notary, I’m a distinguished person in the city and I have a good reputation. But one thing is certain: If the priest does not like me as a candidate, he will do anything to throw a wrench in my plans! My family supports me, but my daughter is very disappointed that she does not have the right to vote. Women do not have the right to enter politics and they do not even have the right to vote in elections. So they cannot express their political views. My 21-year-old son, meanwhile, will be able to vote.

Under the Constitution, a government can remain in power for 5 years. The date of the general election date is set by the premier. That’s when the election campaign officially begins. During this time, the parties promote their platforms. I’ll be running for the Liberal party of Simon-Napoléon Parent.

Just one more week of the election campaign until the big vote! In 1904, the vote is secret and you must be registered on the electoral roll to vote. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see how many people actually vote!
