Voting for residents of Sint Maarten, Aruba and Curaçao

Do you live on Sint Maarten, Aruba or Curaçao and do you have Dutch nationality? Then you can register at the Municipality of The Hague as a Dutch voter abroad.

The deadline to register to vote in the European Parliament elections on 23 May 2019 has passed. You can still, however, register as a Dutch voter abroad. If you register now, you will not be able to vote as a Dutch voter abroad in the European Parliament elections on 23 May.
