Parliamentary elections 2023

The advance voting begins on Wednesday  22.3.2023 eleven days before election day and ends abroad on Saturday 25.3 eight days and in Finland on Tuesday 28.3.2023 five days before election day.

Voting is a fundamental right of every adult citizen. Every Finnish citizen who has reached the age of 18 years has the right to vote in parliamentary elections. During the 22–28 March advance voting period, eligible voters are free to vote at any advance polling station.

On the actual election day, 2 April, you will only be able to vote at the official polling station of your own voting area. Everyone with the right to vote is sent a notice that contains information on the location of both advance polling stations and their official polling station on election day.

At the polling station, you will be required to confirm your identity with a driving licence, passport, a police-issued ID card, or a similar valid official identity card with a photo.
