Voting Early

Early voting means that you vote in a location other than your own polling station.

You can vote early in your own municipality or in another municipality.

Early voting starts approximately three weeks before election day and continues up to and including election day.

In order to vote early, you must take your voter card and identification with you.

This is how you vote early in an election for parliament, municipality and county council

  1. Choose ballots.
  2. Take a ballot envelope.
  3. Go behind a voting screen and prepare your vote. Place an ”x” next to the candidate on the ballot that you want to place a vote for. Then, place the ballot in its respective ballot envelope and close the envelope.
  4. Leave your ballot envelope, your voter card and your form of identification with the election official.
  5. The election official will verify your identity, and mark off your name in the electoral roll, designating that you have voted.
  6. Then, the election official will place the ballot envelope and the voter card in a window envelope. The window envelope will be sealed shut and will be placed in a collection box.

You cannot find your party’s ballot?

Take a blank ballot and write your party’s name on it. You can also place a named vote by writing in your party name and the name of the candidate you wish to vote for.

If you have a party ballot, you may write your candidate’s name on it.

You can also place a named vote by writing in your party name and the name of the candidate you wish to vote for.

Your voter card and ballot envelope will be sent to your polling station

In a location for early voting, there is no electoral roll to check off designating that you have voted. Your ballot envelope is therefore sent, together with your voter card, to your polling station on election day.

In your polling station, the electoral roll will be marked that you have voted and your voter card will be separated from your ballot envelope(s).

This means that your ballot envelopes cannot be tied to your voter card when the votes are counted.
