How to vote in Danish elections

Elections and voting in Denmark

Information about elections in Denmark can be found in the news sections on this website. Likewise, the Embassy will publish information about voting procedures and deadlines for voting on the Embassy website.

Any voter who is registered in the Civil Registration System (CPR) as being permanent resident in a municipality/region in Denmark may vote in advance at any Danish diplomatic or consular Mission, or with a vote receiver appointed by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Interior. The law does not contain any last deadline for voting in advance with a vote receiver abroad. A vote in advance must, however, be cast in sufficient time for it to be forwarded to the municipality in question and be delivered at the polling station in question, prior to the start of voting on election day.

It is possible to vote at the Danish Embassy in Pretoria, or at any of our Honorary Consulates in Cape Town, Durban, Botswana, eSwatini, Lesotho, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. Please see contact details here
