Actually, this year, you can vote for whoever you want and it actually helps them. Every vote gives them 1$ because it's election time, and they'll get 2$ per year until the next elections. So assuming the next elections are in 4 years (wishful thinking lol), a party gets 9$ PER VOTE, that adds up quickly.
QS got 263 233 votes in 2012, if they get the same number of votes this year, they'll make 2.3M$ in 4 years. (More than what half of the Canadiens make this year )
