Can I vote in the Finnish Parliamentary Elections?

As you may have noticed, this spring the Parliamentary Elections will be held in Finland. The official Election Day is on Sunday 19 April and the Early voting days are from 8 – 14 April.

You are able to vote, if you are over 18 years old and you have Finnish Citizenship. If you have a Citizenship but you have not received your voting card via post, you must contact immediately your city’s Local Register Office and find out why. It might be that your home city is not the city that you are currently living in and you can vote in some other voting area.

If you are voting in Early voting days, all you need is ID card. You can vote anywhere where the Early voting is available. If you are going to vote on the Official Election date, you need to have your ID and your voting card with you.

If you have any questions about voting, please contact your Local Register Office: http://www.maistraatti.fi/en/
