Parliamentary elections will be held in Estonia on March 5, 2023. The right to vote abroad applies to Estonian citizens living abroad permanently and to voters who are temporarily staying abroad and are included in the list of voters.
Estonian citizens have three options for voting in a foreign country:
You can vote electronically on the website valimised.ee/en from 9.00 (Estonian time) on February 27 until 8 pm (Estonian time) on March 4, 2023 (24 h a day).
It is possible to vote in Estonia’s foreign representations on at least two days between February 18 to 23, 2023. In the United States, you can vote at the Estonian Embassy in Washington on February 20, from 12 noon to 4 pm, and on February 21 from 10 am to 6 pm.
To vote by mail, you must send your application to vote to your chosen representation no later than February 3, 2023. More information on voting by mail is available on the website valimised.ee/en
A USEFUL REMINDER
Make sure that your Estonian passport or ID card is valid on the day of voting.
Voters who live abroad permanently must have a designated electoral district. If you do not have one, you will not be included in the list of voters. To check whether you have a designated electoral district, please contact email@example.com and provide detailed information about your last place of residence in Estonia.
If you have never lived in Estonia, please submit the last Estonian address of your parents or grandparents to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When submitting information about your Estonian place of residence, please keep the following in mind:
if your address in Estonia is in Tallinn, please specify the district;
if your address in Estonia is in Tartu, specify that it is in the city of Tartu;
with locations in other parts of Estonia, please specify the municipality or town; if you do not know the municipality or town, stating the county is sufficient.
You can only vote if there is correct electoral district data on record, so we recommend making sure your data is up-to-date at the earliest opportunity.
