2018 Political Elections


2018 Political Elections

On March 4, 2018, Italian citizens will elect a new Parliament. Italian citizens who reside abroad and who are registered to vote in the Voting District for Italians Residing Abroad will be able to vote by mail.

Please note that according to article n. 48 of the Italian Constitution, the vote is personal, and equal, free, and secret. Exercising the right to vote is a civic duty. Therefore, the safe custody of the voting ballots received by mail is required, and it is forbidden to give the voting materials to third parties. Violations of these rules will lead to the enforcement of sanctions as set forth in article n. 18 of Law n. 459/2001.
