Members of the Folketing are elected for a four-year term. Elections for the Folketing must be held at least every four years, but the prime minister can call an election at any time. During the election, 179 members are elected to the Folketing, two of whom are elected on the Faroe Islands and two in Greenland.
You are entitled to vote in the Folketing election if you are above 18 years of age, a Danish citizen and permanently reside in the country. In order to be entitled to vote, you must also not be under guardianship with full deprivation of your legal capacity to act (legally incompetent).
Most people who are entitled to vote in Folketing elections are automatically registered in the electoral register. Only Danes living abroad have to apply for enrolment in the electoral register.
If you have any questions about your participation in an election, you must contact the municipality in which you live.
