Cyprus to open polling stations abroad for EU elections

Προεδρικές εκλογές – Λεμεσός – Ψηφοφορία

Cyprus will open polling stations in Greece, Belgium, and the United Kingdom for June’s European Parliament elections.

Cypriots living in those three countries will be able to vote in the countries in which they reside provided they register to vote before April 2.

Those who wish to open other polling stations abroad for the European elections can do so by submitting a declaration to the interior ministry. Should 50 voters in one location submit such a declaration, a polling station will be opened.

People who want to register to vote abroad can do so either on the government’s website, at elections.gov.cy, or in paper form by submitting the relevant form to a Cypriot embassy, high commission or consulate.

Voter registration will be open for both the local government and European Parliament elections until April 2, with the elections set to take place simultaneously on June 9.

In Cyprus, all citizens of the Republic of Cyprus and citizens of the European Union who reside in Cyprus who are over the age of 18 on election day – those born on or after June 9, 2006 – will have the right to vote.

Those aged 25 years old and over are able to register online at elections.gov.cy.

Paper applications can be obtained from local offices of district administrations, Citizens’ Service Centres and post offices, and can also be downloaded from the Electoral Service’s website.
