In the 2024 European elections, members of the EU residing in Verona who are not Italian citizens will be able to cast ballots from Verona. Since multiple voting is prohibited, they can cast their votes for the Italian members of the European Parliament. However, doing so instantly results in the loss of their ability to vote in their home country. Simply submit your application to the city offices by registered mail by March 11, 2024, to achieve this. However, those who were added to the special list for the 2019 election or any prior election will be able to exercise their right to vote without needing to reapply.

Who can vote in Verona?

Citizens who reside in the Municipality of Verona and intend to exercise the right to vote for the members of the European Parliament due to Italy, belonging to the following states of the European Union: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, the Czech Republic, Cyprus, Malta, Slovakia, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, and Sweden.

The application

To use this right, you must apply by Monday, March 11, 2024, to the mayor of the municipality where you now reside to be added to the special added list created in that same municipality so that you can cast a ballot in the European elections. You do not need to reapply if you have already applied, even if it was in a different Italian municipality before moving to Verona.

The application must explicitly state, in addition to the necessary personal information, that the applicant wishes to exercise their right to vote exclusively in Italy, that they are EU citizens, that they have an address in both their state of origin and municipality of residence, that they are entitled to vote in their state of origin, and that they are not subject to any court orders that would deny them the ability to vote in their state of origin.

How to fill out the application

The bilingual (Italian and home language) application form is available on the Ministry of the Interior’s website at THIS LINK, and it can be filled out online before being printed and signed in original for later submission to the municipality. You can submit it in person at the Election Office (Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3 to 5 p.m.) or by registered mail, accompanied by an uncertified photostatic copy of an identity document.

The Municipal Offices will promptly notify the applicant of the outcome of the application, and if accepted, the applicant will be given a voter card and directions to the voting section. All information is available on the Municipality’s website at THIS LINK or by calling the toll-free number 800-300-170.
