All EU foreigners are entitled to vote as long as they are registered on the town hall roll (padron). The last day for checking to see if you are on the electoral roll is December 30, and the town hall is urging people to register before then.

Those who wish to check if they are on the list and also those who wish to register to vote are reminded that details needed are NIE number, full name and date of birth.
Norwegian residents can vote in the upcoming May elections if they have been on the padron for three years and have a resident card or certificate. The last day for checking is January 15.
