Budapest, January 3 (MTI) – European Union citizens living in Hungary can already declare whether they will vote here or in their home country at the European parliamentary elections scheduled for May 22-25.
Under the relevant Hungarian regulations, elections can only be held on Sunday so the vote in Hungary will take place on May 25.
The nearly 100,000 non-Hungarian EU citizens who have a registered address in Hungary can register to vote locally until 16 days prior to the election. Once the requests are registered, the national election offices in individual countries send this information to each other in order to prevent any individual from voting in more than one country.
At the 2009 European parliamentary election, some 5,600 foreign nationals from over 100,000 registered to vote in Hungary.
