How to vote by mail in Catalonia's February 14 early election

Citizens have until February 4 to request mail-in ballots online or at the post office


23 December 2020 05:15 PM



As Catalonia prepares to hold its early election on February 14 after months of Covid-19-related disruptions, many people are still wary of crowds and have increased safety concerns.

But now, with under two months to go to see who will succeed Quim Torra as president after he was barred from office late last September, citizens can request their mail-in ballots and steer clear of any potential health hazards voting in person could possibly imply.

This can be done either entirely online or at a post office before February 4.

To be able to request your ballot online, you will need an IDCAT certificate, a digital certificate or electronic ID, and have AutoFirma installed on your computer.

If you do not have these documents but still wish to vote by mail, you can ask for your ballot in person at the post office, which allows people to request appointments online, and by showing your ID, passport, or driver's license.

Between January 25 and February 7, Provincial Electoral Census Office delegations will then provide those who have asked for mail-in ballots with the necessary documents to be able to send in their votes.
