Municipal elections also open for internationals

About Holland



Dutch political parties have discovered the international and are trying to win them over! 

The municipal elections are around the corner  (21 March) and especially in the big cities,  the votes of internationals can make the difference. In Amsterdam they are fighting for 89.000 potential votes which amounts to 6 out of 45 seats

Anyone with an EU-passport that has registered at his or her municipality or non-EU citizens that have stayed at least 5 years in the Netherlands  are allowed to vote.  See the full article of the Volkskrant (in Dutch) and  for more information about voting rights for internationals.
