Belgian local elections and the expat vote
Non-Belgian EU citizens have had the right to vote in - and stand for - local elections in Belgium since 2000. Non-EU foreigners have been able to do the same since 2004, as long as they have been a resident for at least five years. But a very small percentage have taken advantage of this right.
