It's official. Quebecers are going to the polls again this April 7, 2014 with current Quebec Premier Pauline Marois calling a provincial election earlier today.

Speculation has been rife for weeks, if not months that Marois would call a general provincial election this spring. The last time Quebecers voted in a provincial election was on September 4, 2012 when then Premier Jean Charest called Quebec's 40th General Election after months of student uprisings over his administration's proposed postsecondary tuition hikes.

Pauline Marois' Parti Québécois subsequently won a minority government.

This election represents Quebec's fifth one in 11 years.

APRIL 8, 2014 UPDATE: the 2014 Quebec Election results are in. I break them down here, complete with contextual commentary.
