    • When voting by mail, proceed as follows:
      • Write the registration number of your chosen candidate in the space provided on the ballot paper.
      • Place the completed ballot paper in the smaller (inner) envelope sent to you by the foreign mission.
      • Place the small envelope in the larger (outer) envelope sent to you by the foreign mission.
      • Write your name and personal identification code on the outer envelope.
      • Send the ballot paper in the two envelopes by post to the foreign mission by May 24, 2024 at the latest.

An Estonian citizen will not be included in the list of Estonian voters or will be removed from it if the person has been included in the list of voters of another EU member state during the European Parliament elections (on the basis of information received from another member state). Changes will be made to the list of voters from May 10, 2024. Citizens of the European Union can vote at the Embassy (foreign mission) if a corresponding application has been submitted to the State Election Service by May 10, 2024 and they have been entered in the Estonian list of voters.


  • Please check in advance that your identity document is valid on the day of voting.
  • If you wish to vote electronically, check that you have valid PINs.
  • In order to vote, a person must be at least 18 years old and be included in the list of voters, which means that they must have a residential address entered in the population register. A person may vote in European Parliament elections in only one Member State.
