European Parliament elections

Foreign EU citizens are automatically put on the electoral roll for European Parliament elections at the time of registration of residence.

To vote in European Parliament elections you must:

  • be at least 18 years old
  • not be disqualified from voting, nor be serving a prison sentence

To inform the authorities where they will vote for European Parliament elections, foreign EU citizens should submit a one-off application to be entered in the polling list of the Estonian National Electoral Committee.

To be eligible to stand as a candidate in European Parliament elections you must be at least 21 years old.

A person in active service in the Defence Forces or a person who has been convicted of a criminal offence by a court and is serving a prison sentence may not stand as candidate.

Foreign EU citizens standing as a candidate in European Parliament elections must declare that they are not standing in any other country, and that they are not disqualified from standing. To do so, they should submit an application to the Estonian National Electoral Committee.
