Many non-Dutch nationals can vote in municipal elections on 16 March

On 16 March 2022, some 13 million people with voting rights in 334 Dutch municipalities can cast their vote in the gemeenteraadsverkiezingen (municipal elections). Non-Dutch nationals can also vote for the municipal council if they meet the requirements.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, a number of polling stations will open in every municipality on 14 and 15 March. With the possibility of early voting, voters can choose a quiet moment to cast their vote.

Voters need a stempas (polling card) and valid form of ID or residence document to vote. It is also possible to grant someone else the right to vote on your behalf. Voters who have not received a stempas or have lost one can apply for a replacement pass at the municipality.
