The ballot is always blue for all 978 Municipalities to vote. But it is different depending on the size of the municipalities: over 15,000 inhabitants, under 5,000 and between 5,000 and 15,000.
Administrative elections are held on Sunday 12 June. In a single day, with seats open from 7 to 23, we vote to elect the mayors and renew the administrations of 978 Municipalities and, at the same time, throughout Italy, for the five referendums on justice that have been given the green light by the Constitutional Court. It is election day, similar in all respects to the one held in 2020. The date of 12 June was chosen above all because the polling stations are set up in schools, which in almost the whole country will close on 10 June.
Let’s see in detail the ballot papers (depending on the number of inhabitants) and how the voting method changes.
Ballot paper for municipalities with more than 15,000 inhabitants
To renew the mayor and administration of the largest cities, i.e. over 15 thousand (which in this round are 142 of the 978 municipalities at the polls), an X can be placed on the name of the candidate for mayor and on one of the lists that support him (and the vote will go to both the statutory auditor and the list). Or you can only vote for the candidate for mayor (and the vote does not extend to any list). If you put the X on the list only, the vote will also go to the candidate for mayor that that list supports. But split voting is also allowed: you can mark the X on a candidate for mayor and on a list that supports a different one. Up to two preferences that can be expressed, but in order not to be invalidated the second one must be of a different gender, female / male.
Ballot paper for municipalities between 5,000 and 15,000 inhabitants
In municipalities of 5,000 inhabitants and upwards, there is only one preference by marking the surname and first name (in the case of homonymy) of the candidate director next to the chosen list. In municipalities of less than 15,000 inhabitants, separate voting is not possible.
Ballot paper for municipalities with less than 5,000 inhabitants
For municipalities with less than 5,000 inhabitants, the vote is expressed by placing an X on the candidate for mayor.
