Register for Poland’s Presidential Election
If You Have A Polish Passport
- May 6, 2020
REGISTER FOR POLAND’S PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION
Register online at https://ewybory.msz.gov.pl/
— Sometimes the website is slow, sometimes you have to start over, but it is the easiest and fastest method by far.
Go to the page linked below if you want to register by phone, fax, email or in person:
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Thursday, May 7
The above-referenced page says you can register by midnight on May 7, 2020, as quoted below, but it is not certain which time zone the Polish embassy will go by. Before the last parliamentary elections, the voter registration website was closed apparently based on the Warsaw time and the Consular Division of the Polish Embassy in Washington started rejecting email registrations after 5 PM Washington time of the last day (“following orders from above”). So register early.
“Zgłoszenia można dokonać do dnia 7 maja 2020 r., do godziny 24:00.“
(By the way, democracy advocates and lawyers from Poland urge everyone to register even if you plan on boycotting the election because only a registered voter can file a protest later.)
