OTTAWA - NDP Leader Tom Mulcair says he's the only federal leader eligible to cast a ballot in tomorrow's Quebec election.

Mulcair says Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau cannot vote because he no longer lives in Quebec, despite representing a Montreal riding.

The NDP leader says he voted in an advance poll for Geoffrey Kelley of the province's Liberal party, who Mulcair says is a long-time friend who he considers a social democrat with deep NDP roots.

Mulcair says his primary home is in Quebec and not at Stornoway, the official residence of the leader of the Opposition in Ottawa's tony Rockcliffe neighbourhood.

The New Democrat leader also cautioned against writing off the sovereignty movement in Quebec.

Mulcair says past politicians and pundits have made that mistake before only to see those predictions come back to haunt them.
