Municipal elections – Romania

The electoral roll has permanent character and comprises all the citizens of the European Union

  • who are registered with the Romanian Office for Immigration
  • and have the domicile or residence in the municipality for which the roll is drawn

EU nationals who live in the municipality but aren't registered with the Romanian Office for Immigration can ask the mayor to be put on the electoral roll.

To be eligible to vote in municipal elections you must:

  • be at least 18 years old on election day
  • have domicile or residence in Romania
  • not have been disqualified from voting

Voting in municipal elections isn't compulsory for everybody on the electoral roll.

To be eligible to stand as a candidate in municipal elections you must:

  • have the right to vote
  • be at least 23 years old
  • be resident in the administrative-teritorial unit where you want to stand as a candidate.

These people can't stand for election: mentally disabled people under interdiction; persons deprived of voting rights for a period of time set by a final court decree.

Non-Romanian EU nationals can only be elected as councillors; they can't become mayors or presidents of county councils.
