How can an expat vote while living in the Netherlands
As a non-Dutch European citizen you are allowed to vote during the European elections. To do so, you have to register at your local municipality with the so-called Y-32 form. The Y-32 form is freely available at your local municipality. Furthermore, it is important that you register before 9 April 2019. When registered correctly, you will automatically receive a voting pass a few days before the elections. If you are excluded from voting in your home country or in the Netherlands, you cannot participate in the elections.
