What to do on election day

On the day of the Local Elections, Sunday 22nd May, there will someone from the Foreigners Department at the main reception desk on the ground floor of the Town Hall to offer information to all foreigners who wish to know where they have to go to vote and to confirm, if necessary, that they are on the electoral roll. The reception office will be open from 09:00 in the morning until 20:00 in the evening.

You should have already received the voting card by post showing the school or the public building where you should go to register your vote and also the number or letter of the voting table (A, B…). Even if you have not received the postal voting card, if you are on the electoral roll, you will still be able to vote.

Voting time will be from 09:00 in the morning until 20:00 in the evening. You should take your passport together with your NIE or Residence Certificate. If you do not have your passport, you may also present your driving licence or Residence Card if it has your photo on it.

You must only vote for one political party and you put the list of that party inside the voting envelope. You do not need to write on it or tick any names. You go to your corresponding voting table and, after showing your identity document, you deposit the voting envelope inside the box.

Voting in the Local Elections is a right that all foreigners have and exercising that right is encouraged.
