Dear Expats and Immigrants,

We believe we're achieving our goal of helping Brno to become a friendly and self-reliant city. We're happy that Brno is becoming multilingual and cosmopolitan again, due in part to people like you.

We try to help foreigners coming to Brno, whether as visitors or residents. We want everyone to feel at home in Brno, regardless of where they're from.

If you share our goals and values, we hope that you will vote for us.


If you do not manage to complete your registration in advance, just show up at your polling station and they will let you vote - it is hot news! It is still recommended that you be registered – but you do not need to be registered to vote if you are able to complete your registration later. If you have friends that aren’t from Brno (expats, for example!) be sure they know about this: they can make their voices heard! You can take this letter explaining the purpose of your stay with you. Not all clerks speak English, so this could be helpful.

Remember to bring your certificate of residence and your ID, as the clerk will need to check it.

You can easily vote for your favorite party by making one cross next to the name of the party.

How to register and vote

Can you vote?

All EU citizens with residency in Brno can vote in the municipal elections. This applies to people with Czech citizenship (občanství), people with permanent residence (trvalý pobyt) and also people with temporary residence (přechodný pobyt).

Got your certificate of residence?

If you have your certificate of residence for an EU citizen, then you're just one district town hall visit away from becoming a voter.

If you don't have the certificate, then follow the instructions to get one.

Register to vote

It is better to visit your district town hall by September 21st and register to vote.

Just print and fill out the voter registration form.

If you are not confident about your Czech language skills, consider printing out a letter in explaining the purpose of your stay in Czechia. Not all clerks speak English, so this could be helpful.

Remember to bring your certificate of residence and your ID, as the clerk will need to check it.

The whole process should take about 5 minutes at home and 10 minutes at the town hall.

Show up and vote!

Find your polling station and show up to vote on September 23rd (2pm-10pm) or September 24th (8am-2pm).

The voting process takes about 30 minutes and you can help your city and have your voice heard.

Our candidates

Let us introduce a couple of our candidates that have chosen Brno as their place to live.

I think Brno is a beautiful and amazing city. I love that there is history around every corner – from the tall cathedral spires to the small stumbling stones. I also love how very much the city is alive in the 21st century – modernizing public transportation, making bike travel safer and easier, and opening its doors to an increasingly global world. When I moved here in 1994, my favorite food was fried cheese – and it's still a treat to get a fried cheese in a bun while waiting for the midnight bus. It's exciting to me that these beloved things remain, and are joined by wonderful new things. I think that the coalition of Žít Brno, Greens and Pirates embodies that combination – true love for the city, honest respect for the past, and a fearless focus on openness to new possibilities.

I came to the coalition of Žít Brno, Greens and Pirates as an independent candidate.

I am not a politician, I am a conscious european citizen. And a filmmaker.

With my eyes, and my camera, I've been watching, filming and knowing Brno for 26 years and I've seen his epochal change, thanks also to foreigners. Here we live, work, pay taxes, contribute to its being today so much cosmopolitan. And this also means a greater culture, innovation, professionalism to offer to the important growth of this city.

Brno It is a city in favor of culture, individuals, families, there is more space for children and their happy growth. Public transport is phenomenal, health is excellent, studies with a good level of school and many possibilities. Not just for work but also for a better future to give to children.

Beyond having an Italian czech family, Brno has become my second city, and I feel very close to it and to feel like a Moravian.

I'm here because I want to help foreigners in their journey of acquisition and approach to this city, to be ready to understand the duties to be addressed, then to acquire their rights, in a peaceful exchange of new ideas, new energy, for growthing happy, together, learning its language, History, and tradition. To feel at home.
