Estonian Life No. 5 2019
(Estonian citizens living abroad will vote some two weeks prior to that date.)
Estonian citizens who are in Canada at that date have three opportunities to vote. It's important that all voters have a prior designated electoral district.
Candidates, for whom votes are cast represent 12 electoral districts. Of the 87,500 Estonian citizens living abroad, who are qualified to vote, 77,000 have been designated an electoral district. The voters for whom an electoral district has not been assigned, are primarily those who were not born in Estonia nor have ever resided in Estonia. However, those who have previously voted do already have a district assigned to them.
If you are uncertain as to whether you have been designated an electoral district, please contact the Population Register at See e-posti aadress on spämmirobotite eest kaitstud. Selle nägemiseks peab su veebilehitsejas olema JavaSkript sisse lülitatud.
You can vote only if you have been designated an electoral district. The Estonian Embassy in Ottawa urges anyone with any doubts, concerns or questions regarding their electoral district, to contact the Population Register as soon as possible.
