We would like to register to vote here in Portugal. If I understand things we are entitled to vote in Local (Câmara and Freguesia) elections and in EU elections, but not for the national government or president.
The site https://www.recenseamento.mai.gov.pt/ allows you to check your voting registration status but it requires a Cartão de Cidadão or Bilhete de Identificação, which clearly I don't have.
I've looked on https://www.portaldoeleitor.pt/Paginas/ ... seado.aspx and it indicates that if you are an EU citizen with legal residence in Portugal you should identify yourself with proof of legal residence, such as "Certificado de Registo de Cidadão da União" or "Certificado de Residência Permanente de Cidadão da União" - what exactly are those? And does this imply you can just turn up at a voting station on the day of election with the correct ID/proof?
I have asked at our Freguesia, who said "Try the Câmara"; I asked at the Cãmara and, you guessed it, they said "Try the Freguesia".
Has anyone voted in Portugal? How does the system work?
