Monaco Votes: Important Information for Election Day
Monegasques will be heading to the polls for the National Elections on Sunday, the 11th of February. Here is some important, practical information to help election day run as smoothly as possible.
Polling Station and Required Documents
There will be only one polling station open from 8am to 7pm without interruption, located at Espace Léo Ferré (7, Terraces of Fontvieille 98000 Monaco).
Each citizen must present two documents in order to exercise their right to vote: a valid identity card or passport and a signed voter or proxy card, which were mailed out in January. It is important that all potential voters check the validity of their identity documents before the election day as no identity card will be re-issued on the election day. (Citizens have until Friday the 9th of February to replace lost or expired identity cards at the Civil Status Office.) The old model of the valid ID card is still accepted for voting.
By car: free parking at the Fontvieille Commercial Centre’s Public Parking Lot.
By bus: free bus travel with the presentation of an identity card, passport or voter card.
People with reduced mobility: a sign will be put up at the Fontvieille shopping centre car park to indicate to an access route to the voting room for people with reduced mobility.
People with difficulty standing are reminded that it is possible to access the Espace Léo Ferré by elevator: from Level -2 / Zone E of the Commercial Centre Parking Lot then take the elevator to Level 2. For people with reduced mobility and without transport, take the elevator located next to the shopping mall hair salon to level 2.
In the voting room, dedicated staff will be present and adapted booths will be available. A wheelchair will also be available at the Léo Ferré emergency station.
A reinforced security detail will be in place on polling day. There will be five filter points around the Espace Léo Ferré with bag checks, carried out by seventeen security agents.
