ENROL AT THIS CONSULATE GENERAL FOR ELECTORAL ENROLMENT/VOTER REGISTRATION

 

Electoral enrolment/Voter registration for Portuguese nationals living abroad is not automatic: it is voluntary and free but needs to be registered.

You need to be over 17 years of age and present a current identitity card (BI or Cartão de Cidadão).

Once you enroll, you are able to vote in the Legislative elections (by correspondence) and in the Presidential elections (in person at this Consulate)

Electoral/Voter enrolment is suspended 60 days prior to the elections and continues suspended until the day of the elections. For more information, please check: http://www.recenseamento.mai.gov.pt

and http://www.cne.pt.

 

Please note that the political parties and groups of voters are legally entitled to obtain computerized copy or photocopy of the voter registration books, as long as they have the human and technical means to do so and support their charges.
