You can request a postal vote online, without having to go to a Correos office in person.
Who can use the application to submit an electronic request for a postal vote?
It cannot be requested by voters who are residents in Spain and are temporarily abroad, or by voters who are residents abroad and request it from their country of residence.
You can use BakQ to make a request:
Izenpe provides a solution using the Virtual Card. This is a light software that, if you download it to your computer and you have BakQ, will allow you to make an electronic request for postal voting.
In any case:
The Electoral Census Office must approve the request, so that it can send the documentation for voting to the address you have indicated in your request.
It can be requested from the date of the announcement until 11 April 2024.
After this date, you can exercise your right to vote by handing it in at a Correos office.
Applicants have until 17 April 2024 to drop off the envelope containing their vote, during usual post office opening hours.
For the upcoming elections, the Electoral Census Office asks that the vote be dropped off by the voter themselves, in person. In the event of not being able to do this themselves, voters may authorise someone else to do it on their behalf. This representative must show the corresponding authorisation, a photocopy of the official ID document of the voter and their own official ID document. To make this process easier, Correos has made a template authorisation document available to all voters. Download it here.
