Elections Quebec is warning voters that fraudulent messages are going around indicating that today’s election has been postponed.
The agency took to Twitter Sunday evening, a little more than 12 hours before voters are supposed to head to the polls, to say that the election is most definitely not postponed and that people should disregard any automated calls that suggest otherwise.
Des appels automatisés véhiculeraient de l’info indiquant que les élections sont reportées. Il s’agit d’une fausse information. Les élections auront lieu comme prévu demain, le 1er octobre. Le site officiel pour toute info: https://t.co/bMhCHRYQeZ #polqc #assnat #QC2018

Elections Quebec also tweeted that some people have reported receiving a text message that implies voters will be paid to go out and vote on Monday.
