If you are a citizen of the EU and on the census you are entitled to vote in the Adeje council elections

If you are an EU citizen, or member of a country that has voting agreements with Spain, and are on the electoral register, you are entitled to vote in the local elections this Sunday. Spanish citizens will also be casting their vote for the insular and regional bodies.

You should have received a polling card through the post telling you where your polling station is – however if you have not received such a card you are still able to vote if you are on the census, but do bring some form of photo identification with you – passport, driving licence with photograph, and residency certificate. Even if they are out of date they should still be accepted as long as they are the originals. Polling stations are open from 9am to 8pm on Sunday May 24th.

Overall 22, 677 are entitled to vote this Sunday in Adeje, an increase of over 3.500, and nearly 3,000 of those are non-Spanish. Four years ago the turnout was 53% or 10,115 persons.

This year the number of electoral tables has increased from 23 to 38 in 12 polling stations. There is, however, no polling station in the Costa Adeje bus station, those voters should present at the Magma Arte & Congresos centre and, as per last year for the European Elections, voters from Playa Paraíso will vote in the Armeñime Cultural Centre.

As this is a list system, you chose the complete list of the party for which you wish to vote. The list and envelope may have already been delivered to your house or you will find it in the polling station, place it in the appropriate envelope – in the case of Europeans the list and envelope is white – and give it to the returning office who will place it in the ballot box. Spanish national are also voting for the Cabildo (green list and envelope) and the regional government (Sepia list and envelope)

There have been some changes in polling station allocations

If you are voting for the first time on May 25th in the European Elections – you must be on the census to do so – you will need to know which polling station you are required to attend to vote, and should have received an official communication telling you where to go. However if you haven’t received this letter but have registered on the census you are still entitled to vote.
If you have voted before do still take note as there have been some important changes, in particular for residents in Playa Paraíso and Costa Adeje. While you have probably received a leaflet outlining the changes and listing the streets and the polling station allocation, here are the most important changes.

Playa Paraíso
In previous elections residents of Playa Paraíso voted in the Callao Salvaje Cultural Centre, however this year there are changes, due to the creation of a new electoral section, ‘sección 17’. Voters who live in the following streets will now vote in the Armeñime station:
