Municipal elections Rome 2021
Only a few days to go municipal elections in Rome. Citizens will be asked to choose the new mayor of the capital on Sunday 3 and Monday 4 October. If no candidate wins 50 percent plus one of the votes, the ballot will be required, scheduled for Sunday 17 and Monday 18 October 2021.
The opening and closing times of the polling stations for the elections in Rome
The polling stations will remain open on the day of Sunday 3 October 2021, from 7 am to 11 pm, and in the day of Monday 4 October, from 7 to 15. Even in the event of a ballot, the polling stations will remain open at the same times: from 7 to 23 on Sunday 17 October and from 7 to 15 on Monday 18 October.
If at the closing time of the polling stations, both Sunday and Monday, there will be voters who have not voted in the polling room, the president has the task of having the secretary take note of them and must admit them to vote in the order in which their names are noted. If outside the polling station there is also a line of voters waiting to vote, the president can ask the police to regulate the orderly influx into the polling station to guarantee the right to vote. After the latter voters have also cast their votes, the president suspends the voting process.
Who can vote on 3 and 4 October in Rome
All those registered on the electoral lists of Roma Capitale who have reached the age of 18 by Sunday 3 October can vote. To access the polling station you need an identification document (driving license, identity card, passport or card of a professional order with identification photo) and the electoral card. It shows the address of your electoral section and the number of the polling station where you have to vote. For those who do not have an electoral card or are in possession of one that is not updated or with out of spaces, here’s how to request it.
In Rome, two or three ballots will be delivered (there will be three in those neighborhoods where the vote for the supplementary elections for the Chamber of Deputies is also foreseen). The card for the election of the mayor and the Capitoline councilors will be blue and the one for the choice of the presidents of the town hall and the municipal councilors will be gray. To vote for the candidate for mayor, you can cross the name of the mayor or the symbol of one of the lists in support of him. Two preferences can be expressed regarding the choice of Capitoline councilors, but respecting gender equality: a female and a male, or vice versa. It is also possible to express a separate vote, that is to vote for a candidate for mayor, but to express the preference for two candidates for directors belonging to a list not connected to that candidate. In this case, the vote will go to both the candidate for mayor and the two candidate directors and their list.
