European elections – Poland

UK decision to invoke Article 50 of the TEU: More information

EU citizens entitled to vote in Poland can be placed on the electoral roll at their own request in the municipality where they are permanently residing no later than 3 days before the election day.

EU citizens who have not previously been placed on the electoral roll should apply to the municipal authority responsible for the place where they are domiciled.

A copy of their passport or other form of ID and a written declaration (indicating the number and date of the residence card issued by the provincial governor and the address and the constituency where the EU citizen is on the electoral roll in their country of origin) should be attached to the application.

The declaration should state that the applicant wishes to exercise their electoral rights in Poland and has not been deprived of electoral rights in their country of origin.

Application and declaration forms are available from the municipal authority's population registration department. There is no fiscal charge for submitting a request.

EU citizens who are aged 18 or over on the day of the election and are permanently resident in Poland have the right to vote in elections to the European Parliament.

Persons who have the right to vote in these elections, are aged 21 or over on the day of the election and have been permanently resident in Poland or in another EU country for at least 5 years may stand as candidates.

EU citizens who are not Polish citizens should contact the municipal or city authority responsible for their place of residence in order to make it known where they intend to vote.
