Don’t lose your voice: make sure you’re on the electoral register!

Adeje Ayuntamiento says that foreign nationals who wish to vote in the 2015 local elections need to make sure they are on the census. Often people think that if they are registered on the padron they are automatically also on the census, but this is not the case. It is sufficient to be on the padron for most purposes, but to vote, residents also need to have been entered on the census.

Please note that this concerns local elections only, so this doesn’t bestow a right to vote in national or regional government elections, and to allay some other fears, it will have absolutely no effect on any entitlement to vote in the UK. The following information, though released by Adeje, is applicable to each and every Ayuntamiento in Tenerife.
