Your right to vote

 As you probably all know, in order to vote in the municipal elections here you have to be on the electoral register. Note that, as foreigners, we do not have the right to vote in either Regional or General elections in Spain. 

Every four years you should get a form to complete which you then post back. The Town Hall phoned Pam to check that we had received our forms and most important, we had returned them. They also asked me to check with others on our estate that they had received theirs. 

Of course, who you vote for is up to you.  The important thing is to exercise your franchise otherwise you could end up with a Council that you do not want. 

Whether there will be a special meeting for us this time, I cannot say. There are fewer British residents on our estate now. So a meeting for the Spanish residents might be more appropriate. We shall see.
