2012 Presidential election - advance voting in the UK

Finnish citizens eligible to vote in the 2012 presidential election can cast their vote in the second round on January 25-28. There are eight advance polling stations in the United Kingdom. Saturday 28 January is set to be a busy day of voting in London, so please be prepared for a queue if you're planning to cast your vote on that day.

Advance polling stations are open in 91 countries at Finnish diplomatic missions or other authorized locations. The number of advance polling stations is higher than in previous elections.

In the presidential elections, each Finnish citizen who is 18 years old on or before 22 January 2012 will be entitled to vote. Please make sure that your personal data in the Finnish Population Register Office  (www.maistraatti.fi) is up-to-date.

If you have received polling cards by mail from the Register Office please take them with you to the polling station. The polling card is not mandatory, but will facilitate the voting process. You must provide proof of your identity when voting. The identity card must have a photo on it.
