Netherlands Worldwide

Voting from abroad

If you are living abroad at the time of an election, you should register as a Dutch voter abroad. This will enable you to vote in elections for the Dutch House of Representatives and the European Parliament, as well as elections for the non-residents electoral college for the Senate. You must register via the Municipality of The Hague.

If you are only abroad temporarily, you do not need to register as a Dutch voter abroad. Instead you can stay registered at your home address and vote by proxy or by post.
