Advance Voting for Voters Abroad
At any Danish diplomatic or consular mission. Such votes are accepted by the administrative staff.
Advance voting abroad can also take place with a vote receiver appointed for particular purposes by the Ministry of Social Affairs and the Interior. This possibility is mainly used to serve Danish military personnel abroad, e.g. as members of UN peace-keeping forces. Danish sailors serving on Danish ships in foreign waters – and Danish passengers as well – may also vote on board the ship. The ship’s master (or his/ her substitute) collects these votes.
Advance votes are only valid if the authorized materials procured by the Ministry of Social Affairs and the Interior are used.
Voting abroad can take place at any time, but advance votes cast more than three months before Election Day are not accepted as valid votes and are not counted.
A special rule is applicable to sailors serving on Danish ships in foreign waters and their accompanying spouses, according to which they can cast a new vote as early as one day after an election, which will remain valid until the next election, provided the voting takes place on the ship.
