Postal voting in legislative elections

In Luxembourg, voting in the legislative elections on 14 October 2018 is mandatory for all voters registered on the electoral roll. However, you may request to cast your vote by mail. In this case, you will have to submit your application for postal voting to the board of the mayor and the aldermen in your commune of registration as a voter.

Your commune of registration in Luxembourg is the commune where you reside. This is normally the commune of your last place of residence, except for the case where it is your commune of birth or, the commune of the city of Luxembourg.

The application for postal voting can be submitted from 23 July 2018:

  • electronically on MyGuichet.lu;
  • by post on plain paper;
  • on a preprinted form which can be either downloaded or collected at the commune where the voter is called to cast his or her vote.

The Luxembourg voter residing abroad has to join a copy of their valid passport or ID card. Applicants are required to submit a written and signed statement declaring that they have not been stripped of the right to vote.

The application for postal voting can be submitted to the board of the mayor and aldermen.

  • until 4 September 2018 at the latest, provided the address to which the poll card has to be sent is located abroad;
  • until 19 September 2018 at the latest, provided the address to which the poll card has to be sent is located in Luxembourg.

If the applicant meets the eligibility criteria, the board of the mayor and aldermen will send them a registered mail containing the notice of election, the polling card and the electoral envelopes with the address of the polling station:

  • on 14 September 2018 at the latest if the voter's address is located abroad;
  • on 29 September 2018 at the latest if the voter's address is located in Luxembourg.

Applicants who do not meet the required conditions will be notified of the denial to participate by the board of the mayor and the aldermen.
