Deadline for postal votes expires tonight, 157,000 have registered

The election envelope will be sent by the Ministry of Interior by courier in May. It is compulsory for the voter himself or a third person with express authorisation to receive it.

The registration rate of voters for the postal vote is increasing as the relevant deadline approaches which is on Monday 29 April (Holy Monday).
 
From the 3,000 to 4,000 daily registrations in the previous period, in the last week this number rose and many times exceeded 10,000 registrations daily, as a result of which the shifts of the support office that operates for this purpose at the Ministry of the Interior on a 24-hour basis have been strengthened , 7 days a week.

According to the official data, until Saturday, April 27 afternoon, more than 157,000 Greek citizens had registered on the relevant electronic platform in order to vote by mail in the European elections of June 9. Of these, approximately 116,000 live in Greece, while nearly 41,100 are residents of 115 countries. The number of registered expatriate voters is significantly higher than in the 2023 general election, for which nearly 23,000 were registered to vote in person, with around 18,000 going to the polls in May and 15,600 in June.

Eight out of 10 expatrites are residents of European countries (34,580 - 84.1%), approximately 4,290 are from North and Central America (10.4%), 870 from Asian countries (2.1%), 400 from Africa (1%), 215 from South American countries (0.5%) and 745 from Oceania (1.8%). 

By country, the most registrations come from residents of Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States, Belgium and the Netherlands. In the June elections, expatriates living in countries where polling stations were not set up in last year's parliamentary elections will also be able to vote, as the required number was not filled. These include Angola, Botswana, Zambia, Papua New Guinea, Djibouti, Barbados, Ghana, El Salvador, Cote d'Ivoire and others.

The same data also showed that the interest in the new, for Greek data, voting method is high among all age groups. Voters aged 17 to 30 and 31 to 40 correspond to 31.8% of registered voters. Citizens from 41 to 50 and from 51 to 60 correspond to 38.2%, while those over 61 correspond to 30.1%.
 
It is reminded that registrations are carried out through the application epistoliki.ypes.gov.gr, which is accessible through gov.gr and the websites of the Interior Ministry and of the Foreign Ministry
