How and where can I vote?

πŸ‘‰ You vote in your municipality of residence (where you are domiciled).Β Note: As a Belgian living abroad, there are several possibilities. More information can be found here.

πŸ‘‰ If you are Belgian or registered in time, you will receive your convocation letterΒ two weeks before the elections. This letter will indicate the polling station where you must vote.

πŸ‘‰ On election day, you go to the appropriate polling station with your convocation letter and your ID card.

πŸ‘‰ How exactly voting takes place (with pencil and paper or voting computer) depends on where you live. You can check this map or tableΒ to find out. You can check the official explanatory videos in French, Dutch or German here.

How to vote with a voting computer

πŸ‘‰ On election day, you go to the polling station listed on your letter with your convocation letter and identity card.

πŸ‘‰ After registering, you get a chip card. Then you enter the polling booth, where you insert the chip card into the voting computer.

πŸ‘‰ You vote first for the European Parliament, then for the Federal Chamber, then (if applicable) for the Brussels Parliament and finally for the Flemish Parliament.

πŸ‘‰ You can vote for one list or for several candidates from the same list. On 9 June, Groen has list number 15.

πŸ‘‰ If you agree with the order of the candidates, you vote for the list by colouring the bullet at the top (= list vote). If you like to give certain candidates an extra push (= preferential vote), you can also colour the bullet next to their name. Please note that you cannot vote for candidates from different lists. However, you may vote for 4 different parties for the Flemish, Federal, Brussels (if applicable) and European elections.

πŸ‘‰ Each party also has a list of successors. When an elected MP does not take up his or her mandate, or later quits, a successor takes his or her place. You can also boost successors with a preferential vote.

πŸ‘‰ You can also vote blank if you like. Just be careful: by doing so, you just make the bigger parties bigger.

πŸ‘‰ Once you have confirmed your vote, the computer prints out a ballot paper. You fold that with the printed side facing inwards. Give your chip card to the polling station staff and scan your ballot paper and put it in the ballot box.

How to vote with pencil and paper

πŸ‘‰ On election day, you go to the polling station listed on your convocation letter and identity card.

πŸ‘‰ After registering, you will be given three voting forms: one for the European Parliament, one for the Federal Chamber and one for the Flemish Parliament (if you live in Flanders).

πŸ‘‰ You vote on 9 June first for the European Parliament, then for the Federal Chamber, then (if applicable) for the Brussels Parliament and finally for the Flemish Parliament. You can find more info about voting in Brussels here.

πŸ‘‰ You can vote for one list and/or for one or more candidates from the same list. On 9 June, Groen has list number 15.

πŸ‘‰ If you agree with the order of the candidates, you vote for the list by colouring the bullet at the top (= list vote). If you like to give certain candidates an extra push (= preferential vote), you can also colour the bullet next to their name. Attention: your vote will be invalid if you vote for candidates from different lists. However, you may vote for 4 different parties for the Flemish, Federal, Brussels (if applicable) and European elections.

πŸ‘‰ Each party also has a list of successors. When an elected MP does not take up his or her mandate, or later quits, a successor takes his or her place. You can also boost successors with a preferential vote.

πŸ‘‰ You can also vote blank if you wish. Just be careful: by doing so, you just make the bigger parties bigger.

πŸ‘‰ Do not colour outside the bullet and do not make any other markings on the ballot paper, otherwise your vote will unfortunately be invalid.

πŸ‘‰ When you are done, fold the ballot papers and put them in the ballot box.
