Local elections

The election of members to local and regional councils must be held every four years according to the Local and Regional Elections Act. Such election is always held on the third Tuesday of November in the year of election.

The next election of members to local and regional councils will be held on Tuesday, 19 November 2013.

Who Can Vote?
Any person who has attained the age of 18 years and is resident in the local authority area is eligible to vote in the election to local and regional councils.

However, people who are not nationals of Denmark, another EU Member State, Iceland or Norway may only vote if they have resided in the Kingdom for a period of three years prior to the election. People under guardianship who have been deprived of legal capacity (previously known as “incapacitated adults”), however, are ineligible to vote.

Advance Voting
Any voter who is prevented from attending the polls on election day may vote in advance at any national registration office in Denmark from the third Tuesday in August in the election year (i.e. 20 August, 2013 re. the upcoming elections in 2013) and no later than the Saturday preceding election day (i.e. Saturday, 16 November, 2013). Remember to bring some ID (passport, drivers license or other ID).

Advance voting can also take place at any Danish diplomatic representation abroad (embassies and consulates) from three months prior to election day, and from three weeks prior to election day also in hospitals for hospitalised voters, at care homes and sheltered housing etc., in gaols etc. for detainees, and at home upon application for voters who on account of illness or disability are unable to turn up at a polling station on election day.

If you have voted in advance, you cannot vote on election day! 

Voting on Election Day
At the polling station, you have to present yourself at the voting table indicated on your poll card and turn over your poll card to the keeper of the electoral register. You might be requested to give your name, address and/or date of birth. If you have not received you poll card, or you have forgotten to bring it to the polling station, you can still vote. In case of doubt about your identity, the keeper of the electoral register has to determine your identity and might for this reason ask you to provide some form of documentation thereof, e.g. a passport, drivers license or other ID.

After the keeper of the electoral register has ticked off your name in the electoral register, you will be handed one ballot paper for the local election and one ballot paper for the regional election. If you only wish to use one of the ballot papers handed to you, you can either return the unused ballot paper to the appointed elector, who shall register the ballot paper as returned, or you can vote blank, i.e. put the unmarked ballot paper in the ballot box.

Voting takes place in the voting booth, which only the voter is allowed to enter, unless the voter is in need of assistance.
