Information about voting from abroad released by Foreign Ministry

Romanian Foreign Ministry (MAE) has released a Q&A document regarding voting from abroad that clarifies the conditions for the exercise of the right to vote from abroad in the December 11 general election in Romania.

The document is said to be part of an information campaign conducted by MAE for Romanian nationals with a residence or domicile abroad to inform them about their ways of casting ballots in this year’s parliamentary election.

Answers are provided to the most frequent questions by Romanian voters from abroad about postal voting and the ID papers they need in order to vote.

Another question regards the Romanian nationals registered with the Electoral Roll with an option for postal voting who after confirming receipt of the ballot papers change their mind in favour of voting in person. Romanians with a domicile in Romania who are tourists abroad on Election Day will find out from the document whether or not they can vote.

MAE reports that in order to facilitate the identification of the nearest polling places it has made available an interactive map of polling stations abroad.
