Registering to vote in legislative elections

Last update

Every 5 years, all Luxembourg nationals registered on the electoral rolls elect the 60 members of the Chamber of Deputies (Chambre des députés) by direct universal suffrage. The Chamber of Deputies is the national Parliament in the Luxembourg unicameral system.

In principle, legislative elections take place on the same day and the same month as the previous legislative elections. If that day is not a Sunday, the elections are moved to the Sunday preceding the day in question.

Voting is mandatory and you cannot be replaced by another person. Your votes are cast by secret ballot.

Your status as a voter is attested by registration on the electoral rolls. Electoral rolls are permanent, but removals and new registrations may take place:

  • until the 44th day before the legislative elections;
  • due to a change in voters' electoral residence;
  • due to a correction by the administrative courts.

Who is concerned?

To be registered on the electoral rolls and vote in the legislative elections, you must:

  • be of Luxembourgish nationality;
  • be at least 18 years of age on the day of the election;
  • possess full civil and political rights;
  • reside in Luxembourg. Luxembourgish citizens residing abroad may vote in the legislative elections by postal vote.

You are excused from the compulsory vote if:

  • you live in a commune other than the one in which you are due to vote at the time of the election;
  • you are over 75 years of age; or
  • you are of legal age and under guardianship.
  • You are excluded from the electorate and cannot be admitted to vote if you have been disqualified by a final criminal conviction.

Should you be unable to take part in the vote:

  • by going to the polling station on election day; or
  • by postal vote;

you must inform the State Prosecutor of your reasons for abstaining.

How to proceed

Registration on the electoral rolls

Your status as a voter is attested by registration on the electoral rolls.

Electoral rolls are maintained by the communal administration, in particular using declarations of births and declarations of arrival of residents in the commune. In case of a move to another commune, whatever the period of the year, the transfer of voting rights to the new commune is mandatory and is performed automatically by the communal administrations.

Throughout the year, each commune continuously updates the list of Luxembourg citizens called to participate in the elections. It maintains and registers, automatically or at the request of the electorate, any Luxembourg national who meets the electoral requirements and is domiciled in that commune.

In the case of a full or partial renewal of the Chamber of Deputies, the age and residency requirements must be met on the day of the legislative elections.

Registration on the electoral rolls is automatic:

  • on the official list if you reach the age of 18 before the day on which the list is provisionally closed;
  • on the secondary roll if you reach the age of 18 between the provisional closing of the roll (the 55th day prior to the election) and the date of the election, inclusive.

Revision of electoral rolls and claims

On the 54th day prior to the election, the filing of the provisional lists prepared by the commune is made public. You may then submit your complaint on plain paper to the board of the mayor and aldermen, no later than the 47th day before polling day. A separate complaint must be submitted for each voter.

If you have not yet reached the age of 18 when the provisional lists are submitted, but you will be 18 on the day of the election, you must address your complaint, if any, to the board of mayor and aldermen via your respective legal guardians.

The rolls are definitively closed on the 44th day prior to the election.

If, when revising the provisional lists following a complaint, the commune deletes your name from the provisional lists, you will be notified:

  • by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt; and
  • at your home.

You will be informed in this way no later than 48 hours from the publishing of the lists.

The reasons for the removal are mentioned in the letter.

Any person who is improperly registered, omitted or removed from the electoral rolls may exercise their right to appeal to the administrative tribunal for a reversal.
