Voting abroad

Finnish missions designated as advance polling stations abroad will have a shorter advance polling period than in Finland. You may vote in advance in the municipal elections abroad 2-5 June 2021.

Eligible voters living permanently abroad and eligible voters staying abroad at the time of the advance voting period and the election day will have the right to vote by post from abroad.

Visit the election website provided by the Ministry of Justice for more information on voting from abroad (in Finnish) and postal voting.

Voting at home

An eligible voter may vote in advance at home if their ability to move and function is limited to the extent that they are unable to visit an advance polling station in Finland or their polling station on election day without unreasonable difficulties.

You must register to vote at home in advance. The registration should be submitted well in advance before the due date, which is 1 June 2021 at 4 pm in the municipal elections. Registrations received after this time will not be considered.

Residents of Helsinki may submit their registrations to the City of Helsinki Central Election Commission office by phone or e-mail or by posting the at-home voting registration form (in Finnish).

The elections website provided by the Ministry of Justice contains further information on voting at home (in Finnish).

Voting at institutions

If the eligible voter is in care in a hospital or a social welfare unit providing 24-hour care (e.g. retirement home, nursing home, assisted living facility) or in prison, they may vote in advance at the institution. Voting at institutions is organised by electoral commissions that have been appointed for the specific task of organising voting at institutions.

The elections website provided by the Ministry of Justice contains further information on voting at institutions (in Finnish).
