Dear Voter!

Dear voter,
Welcome to the electoral roll in Norðurþing.

As this is the first time you will be voting here in Norðurþing, we would like to go over a few practical matters regarding the municipal elections on 14 May.

Where can I vote?
The municipality’s polling station(s) is/are:
Polling stations I & II for voters in Húsavík and Reykjahverfi.
Skólagarði 1, Húsavík.
Open: 10:00 – 22:00

Polling station III for voters in Kelduhverfi

You can search for your name in the electoral roll at egkys.is to see where you vote. If you are unable to vote on election day you can cast an absentee ballot. Further information on pre-election voting can also be found on www.kosning.is

How does the voting take place?
When you have identified yourself by showing your identification (passport), you will be handed a ballot. You take the ballot with you into the voting booth and use the pencil there to make an X by the party of your choice. (If there are no candidates, you must write out the names of those you wish to vote for.) You then fold the ballot and put it in the ballot box.  Don’t do anything else with the ballot, as that may invalidate your vote.

Am I on the electoral roll?
Did you move to a new address recently or are you a foreign citizen? Go to www.kosning.is and search for your name to see if you are registered on the electoral roll. Foreign citizens earn the right to vote in municipal elections when they have resided in Iceland for a specified number of years.

Further information
The website www.kosning.is contains a wealth of practical information for voters. The municipality’s website www.nordurthing.is has information on polling stations and the parties running in the municipal elections. Information on the candidates and their policies in municipal matters can be found on the websites and social media accounts of the parties.
