IMMIGRANTS living in Greece have until the end of the month to register to vote in the November 14 local elections.
For the first time, those who have resided legally in Greece for five or more years and possess the correct residence permit can take part in the poll. Non-EU citizens require a permanent, 10- or 5-year residence permit, while EU citizens need their registration certificate.
According to the interior ministry, more than 11,000 people have expressed an interest in registering. In addition, almost 1,800 EU nationals and Greeks living abroad have already submitted applications. To complete the process, those wanting to register must go to their local municipality’s election office and bring with them their passport and registartion certificate. The deadline for applications is August 31.
