The European Parliament represents citizens of all member states at a European level. The elections for the European Parliament will be held in the Netherlands at 23 May 2019.
You can only vote if:
You will receive a poll card (stempas) between 2 and 9 May by post, if you are eligible to vote.
Are you a citizen of another EU country and would you like to vote for the Dutch members in the European Parliament? This is possible if you registered no later than 9 April as a voter.
When you vote, you must bring your poll card and identity document. An expired identity document will be accepted, but it must not be expired by more than five years.
If you have not received a poll card, or if you have misplaced your poll card, you can apply for a new one in person at the Stadswinkel up to 22 May, 12.00 noon. You must present an identity document.
If you wish to apply for a new poll card in writing (PDF, in Dutch), the Civil Registry (Basisinformatie) must receive your request no later than 20 May (send it to gemeente Helmond, or deliver it in person at the Stadswinkel).
You can also apply for a new poll card with DigiD (in Dutch) until 20 May 24.00.
Your voting pass will list the address of a polling station in your neighbourhood, but you are free to vote at any polling station in Helmond. Click here for an overview of all polling stations in Helmond.
