The County Elections 2022 are not held in Helsinki

The first County Elections will be conducted on Sunday 23 January 2022. The people of Helsinki do not vote in the County Elections, as the City of Helsinki is not part of the new wellbeing services counties, which will be established as a result. In Helsinki, the decisions concerning social welfare, health care and rescue services are made by the City Council.

The County Elections are therefore not conducted in Helsinki and the people of Helsinki are not entitled to vote in the County Elections in January 2022.

People from other municipalities who are entitled to vote may do so in advance in Helsinki
