To be able to vote in Belgium, you must meet a number of conditions:
· You must have Belgian nationality
· You must be at least 18 years old
· You must live in a Belgian municipality and be registered in the population register
· You must not be excluded from the right to vote
According to the Electoral Code, people who have received a criminal conviction - life imprisonment, forced labour, detention and imprisonment - are definitively excluded from the right to vote.
European nationals can also take part in municipal and European elections. Non-European nationals who have lived in Belgium for at least 5 years can also vote in municipal elections. In both cases, you must be registered on the electoral roll.
If you are a Belgian living abroad, you can vote by post or by proxy, via the Belgian embassy in your country of residence.
Further information about the elections can be found on the website of the Directorate of Elections of the Federal Public Service Home Affairs. On the website with the Belgian election results, you can find the results of all elections in Belgium since 1848 for the local, regional, federal and European level.
