Important dates

Advance voting is held on 6–10 November 2018.

You can vote in advance at any advance polling station in Finland. The election day proper is 18 November 2018. Remember to take your identity card with you when you vote!

To vote, you need to know your candidate’s number. The numbers are available on parish websites (in Finnish) after the candidates have been nominated.

The official election day is 18 November 2018.

Polling stations are open from 11 am to 8 pm on the official election day.

Please note that you can only vote in a polling station of your parish on the official election day.

If your mobility is limited and you cannot get to the polling station or an advance polling station without unreasonable difficulty, you can vote in advance at home. To request home voting, contact your parish by 4 pm on 2 November 2018 to receive more information.
