Voting in Spanish local elections

Sunday the 22nd May 2011 will see the local Municipal elections in Spain. All European Union citizens who are resident in Spain and are 18 years of age or over are entitled to be included in the electoral role and vote in Spain on that day.

The United Kingdom Embassy in Madrid has issued information and guidelines to help UK nationals register to vote if they so wish, subject to the correct criteria.

This is the opportunity for all eligible UK expatriat residents to voice their opinion on how their adopted Town Council should operate to provide the services needed for the local community. It is one that should not be missed, as no vote means no voice and no representation.
