Hungarian Absentee Voter Registered to Vote in January, Only Put on Voter Roll After Election

Although a Hungarian citizen in the Netherlands registered with the National Election Office (NVI) in January to be able to vote by mail in the April election, they only received notification of having been put on the voter roll on May 13, reports 444.hu.

This means that four months were needed for NVI to send the notice, so the person was obviously unable to take part in the April 3 parliamentary elections. The voter did not even receive the necessary ballot package to vote by mail.

When the voter complained about the delay on April 1, they only received a generic response about “delivering ballot packages to registered foreign voters.” [HVG]
