If you have not received or have lost your return envelope and/or ballot paper envelope, you can also use your own envelope or envelopes.

Registering as a Dutch voter abroad

If you haven’t received any voting documents at all, this may mean you are not properly registered as a Dutch voter abroad.

Non-residents Records Database (RNI)

You should also make sure that your correct address details are registered in the Non-residents Records Database (RNI). This will ensure that other government bodies know how to contact you.

The details associated with your registration to vote from abroad are not automatically transferred to the RNI.
