Published: 8.3.2023

The actual election day for the parliamentary elections is Sunday 2 April 2023. Advance voting is from 22–28 March 2023.

The parliamentary elections decide on the 200 members of the Finnish Parliament for the next four-year term.

In the parliamentary elections held in Finland, every Finnish citizen who has reached the age of 18 no later than on election day is entitled to vote, regardless of their place of residence.

Each eligible voter may, at their own discretion, vote in advance or on the day of the election. The voter may give their vote to the candidates in their own electoral district.

Voting in advance

An eligible voter is entitled to vote in advance at any public advance polling station in Finland or abroad. Advance voting is possible 22–28 March 2023.

There are 14 advance voting stations. New voting stations can be found at the new joint Citizen Services and Kela service point (Tammipiha, Teräksenkuja 1) and at Prisma Liisanlehto. In addition, mobile voting stations, the so-called Office Boxes (in Finnish, Toimistokontti), visit the parking lots of four supermarkets.
