Comites elections


Comites elections

This year there will be elections for the renewal of the Committees for Italians Abroad (Com.It.Es).

The Com.It.Es are representative bodies of the Italian community and work for the integration of the Italian community residing in the foreign country in which they are located. The Com.It.Es. carry out various support activities for their compatriots: they can offer information on finding a home, on the pension system or on how to enrol children in schools; they can also organize seminars, meetings and conferences, language courses, training and professional refresher courses, cultural initiatives to promote Italian culture and exchange, recreational or sporting.

The elections for the renewal of Com.It.Es. will be held by the 3rd December 2021.

Italian citizens over the age of 18 registered with AIRE (register of Italians residing abroad) and living in the WA consular district from a date prior to the 3rd June 2021 will be able to participate in this important electoral appointment. The elections are held by correspondence: the Consulate will send the electoral envelope by post only to the voters who by 3 November have asked the Consulate to be registered in the electoral list for the elections of the Com.It.Es.

Voters who have correctly registered themselves will receive the electoral envelope at the address they have indicated in the form. You are requested to follow the instructions on how to express your vote and promptly send the pre-paid envelope back to the Consulate so that it will arrive by 12am of the 3rd of December.

If by the 19th of November you haven't received the electoral envelope yet, you can contact the Consulate to ask for a duplicate. To this aim please fill in the attached form.
