Hello, I live in London, how can I vote in the next Polish election ( or any referendum )?

I am close to owing a property just outside Warsaw, how do I vote in any local/council elections?

Thanks
Jozef

If you are a Polish national, ask at the Embassy. Polish people living in the UK have the right to vote in Polish elections or referenda.

For voting in local or council elections in Poland you have to live in Poland and be 'zameldowany' at your Polish address.

ok thanks I will email the embassy now.

I will deal with the local one later, we will be registered but no live there full-time yet.

They said to contact them again once an election/referendum date is announced.

You need to do your meldunek anyway - only takes an hour or so but there can be long queues

People who do not (or are going to in a near future) live in a country should not be able to vote in elections.
It's like choosing your neighbour's living room colors- you are not gonna live there, only see them once in a while but they will see it every day.

In Poland, a decade or so ago there was a joke:

"Jaki jest szczyt chamstwa?
- Zaglosowac na PiS i wyemigrować"

I hope I do not need to translate it

The same thing applies to Britons living overseas. They have the right to vote in General elections and referenda and do so.
One thing is the applicable Electoral Law and quite another 'your personal opinion.'

I'm aware of that. It's 15 years, frankly speaking I think it should be less (probably 2-3 years, unless one serves in army abroad etc).

To a point.

You can only continue voting in U.K. elections for 15 years after moving abroad. After that, you can't.

A handful of countries (Poland, I think Italy among them) allow people to vote under certain circumstances even if they've never set foot in the country.

Whatever you do, don`t vote for Duda. He works for non-Poles. Its clear by his actions.

don`t vote for Duda

Difficult Crowie. We have a self serving clown where I live who has been in power as long as Putin, (and has made a living out of pretending he is "independent" - aka, he licks every orifice, depending on whose ******* needs a good cleaning at the time) and he is far too comfortable, and has burnt all the city funds on a fecking airport :(

Thinking of voting PIS :) :)

Poles should give vote to patriots that openly speak of closer ties with Hungary and Serbia. That is how you know, you won`t give voice to traitors of Poland and to corrupt politicians.

No, don`t do that. They sending Polish troops to work with and train mujaheedines.

Alright. Then Hungary. Just don`t vote for traitors and mujaheedine friendly politicians no matter how sweet are their words. Sad really that Poles actually don`t have information.
