British People Can Vote in Spain (if on the electoral register) after March 29
#1
An agreement was signed last week between the Spanish Government and the UK which will continue to allow British people, who are on the electoral roll in Spain to continue to be able to vote in the Ayuntamiento elections and the European elections as they have in the past.

It also confirms that they can also stand as candidates, and existing councillors will be able to keep their seats.

Anyone who wants to vote in the elections coming up in May 2019 needs to have registered by January 30th.

That's great news! Hope there's still enough people to keep Debbie Edgington in Caleta behind the wheel.

Agreed. Incidentally, my wife and I got our registration papers to vote automatically, presumably because we are on the padron. Sent off to GC and received our authorisation to vote (?).

What is the system of voting in the local elections in May, do you vote for a local representative or for the party? and is the Mayor directly elected or the choice of the biggest party?

I believe you vote for the party and it is on the basis of proportional representation.

You vote for the party.
Each party has a list of candidates in numerical order, and the councillors are elected on proportional representation.
So if a party gets the majority of votes, the Number 1 candidate becomes mayor and then they go down the list.  So, for example, the first 5 on the list might become councillors while the Numbers 6 down don't get in.

Thanks for that. Tony Pereira, who owns Don Pepe restaurant at Parque Holandes with his siblings and campaigned for the dunes road to remain open, is the PP candidate for mayor.
