Local Elections Information Website Launched

The Ministry of the Interior has launched the official logo of the local elections on May 28, as well as an informative website, elecciones.locales2023.es, which is now also available in English, and contains relevant information on how to exercise their right to vote, the election calendar, and the different candidacies that are presented, among other issues.

The website presents an attractive and modern design, which facilitates friendly navigation through the different contents that are integrated around four large sections: general information, political formations, people who make up the tables and accessibility.

Voters will be able to solve any doubt on the modalities of voting in person or by mail on this portal; about the opening hours of schools; or on the personal identification documents that must be presented at the polling stations.

An important section is the one dedicated to accessibility, which includes general information both for people who go to the polling station to vote and for people who are part of the polling stations. In the latter case, special emphasis is placed on deaf and blind or visually impaired people and on the tools made available to them to carry out their duties at a polling station.

The website is available in Spanish, Catalan, Galician, Basque and Valencian and, as a novelty this year, also in English with the aim of providing information to those foreigners residing in the country who have their right to participate in local elections recognised.
