Voting in Peru Question

Good morning everyone,

My husband and I are in the process of waiting on his green card and it just hit me yesterday that he missed the elections in Peru since he is here.

I do know that in Peru you are forced to vote and if not, you get fined. How will this work if we go to or move to Peru someday and they see that he hasn't voted in years? Will he be fined for all of those years that he missed?

Also, if the two of us end up being dual citizens for both countries do we have to go to Peru just to vote?

Wasn't sure how all of this works so, I thought I'd post it on here before I call the Consulate.

Thanks a bunch for all of your help!

I believe this is a general discussion forum for Mexico, Latin & South America that is why I posted my question on here.

It's basically a general question not related to any particular type of visa, but just someone who is here on a visa and not within their country to vote.

I hope that clarifies things. Thanks!

Most likely if he does not vote on Peru elections he will get fine for either not voting and/or for being selected as a member to register people to vote at a voting point. He can check more info at the ONPE website: http://www.onpe.gob.pe/

Most of the issues is if both of you move to Peru and he wants to get documents at the RENIEC or other agencies in Peru or get things notarized, etc... he will be asked to pay the fines first before they can do any transactions or paper work for him.

You don't have to go to Peru to vote. Depending where you live in the States you can contact the Peruvian Consulate or visit their website and see information about voting abroad or check the ONPE as well.

I hope this helps :-)

Hey ! So I talked to my fiance about this she said it depends on what adress he register his DNI with and that he can check here...

Para realizar su consulta, el ciudadano deberá ingresar a www.onpe.gob.pe, elegir la opción Consulte aquí si tiene multa, luego digitar el número de su Documento Nacional de Identidad (DNI) y agregar el código de seguridad que figura en el recuadro.

Luego de ello, automáticamente aparecerá en la pantalla un récord de votación que indicará en qué proceso electoral no participó el elector omiso y el monto de la multa que le corresponde abonar.

Hope this helps ! Congrats on the visa we hope ours is fast today is 42 days since noa1 noticed your noa2 came in 42 days please let ours also lol, anyone else with questions about peru please ask.
