Advance ballot in EU parliamentary poll begins on Wednesday

Advance voting in the elections to the European Parliament will be held in Finland from May 29 May to June 4 and abroad between May 29 and June 1, said the Ministry of Justice in a press release on Monday.

However, many of the advance polling stations located abroad are open for a shorter period than this.

The election will be held on June 9.

During the advance voting period, eligible voters may vote at any of the general advance polling stations in Finland or abroad.

Persons whose ability to move and function is so limited that they are unable to go to a polling station without unreasonable difficulty may vote in advance in their own home.

Those who wish to vote in advance in their home must notify the central municipal election board of their municipality of this by 16.00 on May 28.

Persons residing or staying abroad for the entire advance voting period and on election day may vote by post from abroad.

An eligible voter wishing to vote by post must order the postal voting documents to an address located abroad in advance, cast their vote after receiving the documents, and send the ballot to the central municipal election board of their municipality in Finland.

Postal votes must arrive at the correct central municipal election board by 19.00 on June 7.

The Digital and Population Data Services Agency has sent a polling card to all eligible voters either by post or electronically via Suomi.fi Messages.

The number of eligible voters in the upcoming elections in Finland is around 4.5 million.

Voters must present proof of their identity at the polling station. Official photo IDs, such as passports, driving licences and identity cards issued by the police are accepted as proof of identity.
