Citizens can check the number of their polling station in the forthcoming European Parliament elections on the Internet, by SMS or by telephone.

Information via the Internet can be found at: https://www.grao.bg/elections/. It also provides an opportunity to submit a "Request for Voting at Current Address" by electronic means and to register the issued "Certificates for Voting in Other Places" by the municipal administrations after identification with an electronic signature.
