Rights and duties of electoral registration

Every voter has the right and the duty to promote his/hers electoral registration, as well as assuring their registration and, in case of error or omission, to request its correction (article 3, paragraph 1 of Law 13/99).

Electoral registration has permanent effects and may only be cancelled in those cases and terms foreseen by law (article 5 of Law 13/99).

Electoral registration is unique for all elections through universal and direct suffrage (article 6 of Law 13/99).

No one can be registered to vote more than once (article 7 of Law 13/99).

Citizens over the age of 18 may register to vote, as well as those over the age of 17, provisionally, automatically becoming voters when turning 18 (article 35, paragraphs 1 and 2 of Law 13/99).

Voters living abroad are registered at the Consulate responsible for their area of residence, as shown on the ID or Citizenship Card.

 

Change of address

If there is a change of address, please contact the Consulate immediately in order to register the change of address, enabling you to vote on the upcoming elections.
