Do you need help to vote?

You can vote by messenger, which means that someone other than yourself takes the vote to the polling station or premises for advance voting. You need a special material for this that is available at the civic centre. You make ready your vote yourself by placing a ballot paper in a vote envelope for each election and close the envelopes. A relative or professional carer may act as the messenger and when submitting the vote they must show their identification.

If you are prevented due to health reasons or do not know anyone who can act as a messenger - call us at the municipality on telephone number 08 530 610 50, from August 22, and we will help you to solve this.

Voting at institutions

We will visit nursing homes in the municipality as well as correctional facilities on the Sunday prior to the election. This is for the residents at the institutions.
