Foreigners with permanent residence in Slovakia can choose whether to vote for Slovak MEPs or MEPs of their home country. In the latter case, they can vote by mail, at the embassy or a different way.

It is possible to vote only for the MEPs of one country. Otherwise, they will be fined.

The EP election will take place in Slovakia on May 25. Voters elect 14 MEPs for five years. The results will be known after May 26 23:00, when the elections will be over in the last country, Italy.
