How, where and when to vote on Sunday

Adeje Ayuntamiento has very helpfully compiled the following. Clearly the system will apply in all other municipalities as well, but the list at the bottom is just for polling stations in Adeje; as will be clear, these are often in cultural centres, but other areas will have their own locations.

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

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 Even if they are out of date they should still be accepted as long as they are the originals.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) – see the photo below.

  2. Thanks Janet, haven’t received any polling cards through the post, but we are definitely on the Town Hall list. Moved to Adeje area last October from the dreadfully run Arona area, maybe that’s why we haven’t received it. So glad to be living in a well run area.

  3. Thanks Janet, I hadn’t realised it was this Sunday!
