Greeks abroad can now begin to register in online electoral list


Greece’s Interior Ministry launched on Wednesday a new information campaign in digital and print media abroad to inform Greeks who reside outside the country that they should register in the special electoral list if they want to vote in the next national elections from their country of residence.

According to Ekathimerini, to qualify for the vote, those interested will have to have lived in Greece for two years in the last 35 years and must have submitted a tax return during the current or previous tax year.

Those who register will have to cover distances to places where polling stations will be set up and can only vote if there are 40 voters eligible to cast their ballots in their districts.

This decision comes after a law voted in December 2019.
