Who do we vote for?

For the first time municipal elections will be associated with elections to higher territorial units. So if a foreigner meets the conditions, he/she will be able to vote:
A voter may vote only in the city district of his/her permanent residence in the electoral district in which he/she is registered. City districts are responsible for enrolling all foreigners with permanent residence in the permanent list of voters. Upon arrival at the polling station, the voter is obliged to prove his/her identity to the electoral commission by presenting his/her identity card or proof of residence for foreigners. You can find your street and the polling station designated for it at the links below.
