How do I get onto the Polish electoral roll to vote in the European Parliament elections?

Hi everyone,

I'm an EU citizen currently living in Poland and would like to get on the Polish electoral roll. Does anyone know how to do that?

Thanks

Go to the gmina office and register, it literally takes five minutes. However, you'll need to hurry if you want to get on the electoral roll for the next elections. Also, I think that you might well have to have a maldunek sorted out (and quite possibly a certificate confirming your right to reside in Poland as an EU citizen), in which case you really need to hurry.

well I have only the registration paper and that one has an "Adres zameldowania" line in it with my address. Does this count as maldunek?

What does it say in big letters at the top?

It says Rzeczpospolita Polska :) But I guess you mean this line: "Zaświadczenie o zarejestrowaniu pobytu obywatela Unii Europejskiej".

Went to vote today. Voters have to sign off on the election roll behind their name, and this per street
However my name was on a separate blue-coloured page. One other person was on that page, I suppose also a EU citizen.
Did anybody here had the same experience?
I remember during the last local elections I was on a different page as well, but still white :)

Mine wasn't on a blue paper (it was white) but on a separate sheet as well. It's because EU citizens were listed on the B part of the electoral register. Who did you vote if I may ask?

@sobieski
Mine was white. And I had the entire piece of paper to myself (it appears that the other two EU citizens have moved away).

Actually you can check the number of EU citizens in each polling stations at the following page: pe2014.pkw.gov.pl/en

For instance in this station there was only one guy and he/she showed up: pe2014.pkw.gov.pl/en/wyniki/protokoly/54646

Thanks! That's a cool site. At my polling station turnout of Poles was 35% and for other EU citizens it was 100%.

I always vote PO...despite the fact they not always deserve it. What I bemoan is there is no serious opposition party worthy of that name who I could vote for

What is for me downright bizarre - every time I vote I see in my polling station 1.People sitting down at some table, analyzing their voting form, even discussing it with passers-by... 2. or crowding with a whole family in the voting cubicle...and discussing loudly all the options.

Where I come from such a vote would be automatically null and void. Most peculiar.

Can't say I've ever seen any of that, but then the polling station does tend to go rather silent when a voter is talking to the electoral committee in a language other than Polish (I do always start by speaking to them in Polish but they always reply in English).

It seems Macieriwicz found a new topic - after all his "religia smoleńska" has run out of steam (Goofy?) - he now claims PIS lost the elections because of fraud....

As PIS lost six elections in a row, they probably all were falsified :)

Hehe - that should include your registered address.

Is there no end to that guy's idiocy.

I just looked at mine. Despite me owning the place where I live and having had five previous residency permits at that same address and having been visited by the police at that address during and being on the electoral roll at that address and presenting the notarial deed which proves I own the place when I applied for the latest bit of paper, my Zaświadczenie o zarejestrowaniu pobytu obywatela Unii Europejskiej does not include my registered address.

No.
