Register to Vote in the Local Elections

This is a reminder to all residents who hold a valid Portuguese Residence Card (Cartão de Residência) to register to vote.

This Autumn the “Presidente da Câmara” “and “Presidente da Junta” in all town halls and parishes all over the country are up for election on 1st October 2017.

How to register?

The registration process is very simple and costs nothing.  First-time registration can be made at the offices of your local Parish Council (Junta de Freguesia) (opposite the Câmara offices.  To register, just take along your valid Portuguese Residence Card (Cartão de Residência) or your Passport.  You will be required to fill in a registration form (Verbete de Inscrição).  The staff will then provide you with a Voter’s Card (Cartão de Eleitor), which shows your name, voter’s number and constituency.

Once you are registered there is normally no need to re-register unless you move to a different parish (freguesia).

We have just been advised that the final day to register is this coming Monday 31st July…

It’s time you had your say especially about the conditions of Vale Da Telha
