Should Polonia and expat Poles lose voting rights in Polish elections?

But final result will have to wait till Polonia postal votes come in.

A record number of expat Poles have registered to take part in presidential elections - 387.000. Some of them have already received and submitted their voting cards, other complain they still haven`t.

5 years ago 165.000 expat Poles voted. Kukiz won the first round with 38%. Duda got 25%, Komorowski 21%.
In the second round, Duda got 56%. In the USA it was 81% of all votes.

But nothing is given for ever. In 2019 parliamentary elections Polonia rejected PiS and voted the opposition.

Looks like only postal votes received by Sunday are counted so many thousands of Polonia will miss out. Looks like you got your wish Pawian :(

That was known. Actually in some places it was supposed to be Friday. Don't see why those who want to vote should miss out...

Polonia that will miss out is the Polonia in places that don't do even postal voting (I think Chile is one of them)

I am not happy about it. I believe most Polonia won`t vote Duda.

American Polonia (the worst Polonia?) probably will.... the rest probably wouldn't....

Am Polonia isn`t unanimous or unified in their views. There is traditional peasant Chicago and new intelligence in California. Check the results in previous parliamentary elections.

First, thousands of ballot cards weren`t delivered in time to Polonia and people weren`t able to vote. Thank you, PiS.

Next, 15.000 cards were lost in the UK. Thank you, PiS.

Additionally, thousands who wanted to register for the second round and the deadline was last midnight, couldn`t do it due to net registration system failure. Thank you, PiS.

Kurwa mać, have those rightard morons carried out anything correctly from the beginning to the end???? Or is Chaos and Mess second names of PiS??

Lost 15.000 cards can be a sabotage

Someone who haven't been living in Poland in the last 10 years (or at all!) should not have the voting rights. they don't pay the taxes (as they live elsewhere), and- most importantly- wont face the consequences of their choice.

it's a bit different story if, for example, someone has emigrated to earn money for business/house etc and is coming back after a couple of years (or so)- then I think they should be allowed to partake in the elections only if they already know they will come back to PL (i.e. they already have dates) in foreseeble future (but not 'one day').

Then they must simply extend the deadline - I'm sure that would get a fair hearing in the constitutional court.

Sure all of our friends in Chicago and wherever agree that polonia should get their voting rights
