Municipal elections

Foreign EU citizens need to register to vote in municipal elections.

To be registered on the electoral roll you must be over 18 years old and a citizen of an EU country.

If you are on the electoral roll, you must vote. Voting is compulsory for everybody on the electoral roll, and if you don't vote, you could incur fines of up to €340.

To stand as a candidate in municipal elections you must:

  • be registered on the electoral roll
  • be over 21 years old

Foreign EU citizens can't become mayors, but can run to become members of the mayor's executive committee.
