New voters who want to vote in person in the presidential election have time to register by July 9 until midnight, the ministry said.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs reminded in a statement that persons registered to vote in the first round of presidential elections do not have to register again – the application remains valid for the second round.
Reports can be made online, at https://ewybory.msz.gov.pl/. The website also provides all information and details about voting abroad in the second round of elections.
When registering, provide your PESEL number, as well as your passport or ID card number.
Next, during the registration process, select the type of voting (direct or correspondence), the country and the regional committee in which you want to vote.
When entering data, Polish characters should be used, the spelling should be checked carefully, and the address in the format used for postal correspondence should be provided in the address of residence abroad, without giving the name and surname.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs also reminded to check whether the elected commission is in the consular district in which the voter will be staying on the day of voting. In case of any questions or doubts, all information should be verified on the website of the selected diplomatic and consular mission.
The second round of elections, in which the re-election president Andrzej Duda and the candidate of the Civic Coalition Rafał Trzaskowski will face, will take place on July 12.
