European Parliament election

When you vote in the European Parliament election, you have the opportunity to vote either in Denmark or Ireland. You can only vote in one country.

How to vote in Denmark

You must send an application no later than April 23, 2019 to be added to a special electoral list in the City of Copenhagen, you will find the application form here.

It must be sent either by mail or e-mail to:

Københavns Kommune
Nyropsgade 7
DK-1602 København V

Tel. +45 33 66 33 66

Once you have submitted your application, you will be notified if you can vote or not in the Danish European Parliament election.

NOTE: If you are registered on the electoral roll for the parliamentary election and this is still valid on May 26, then you are automatically on the Danish electoral list for the European Parliament election and therefore do not need to send in an application. If you are unsure whether this still applies, you can contact your former municipality of residence or the City of Copenhagen's Population Register.

You can vote at any embassy or consul in the country which you are a resident or staying in. There is no deadline, but you must do so in time for your vote to reach Denmark before May 26. We advise you to vote no later than May 17th to be sure your vote will make it in time. Alternatively, you can postal vote in any municipality in Denmark from April 15th.

If you wish to vote at a consul, please book an appointment by using the contact details provided on this page.

How to vote in Ireland

To vote in Ireland, you must be on the electoral register (Register of Electors).

You can apply to be added to the list if you are over the age of 18 and have been resident in the country on September 1 the year before the registry enters into force (September 1, 2018).

If you are not on the list and would like to vote in Ireland, you must complete and submit Form RFA2 no later than 15 days before the May 24 election date in Ireland. Remember that you must also fill in an appendix, Form EP1, which ensures that you cannot double vote. You can find the application form and appendix to the election list here.

If you are unsure if you are already on the Register of Electors, you can check it here.

Your local authorities are responsible for the list, so you can also get help and information from your local council.
