1. given notice that they wish to be listed in the electoral roll;

2. stated their nationality and address in Sweden, and with regard to persons who are not registered as resident, their date of birth or, where appropriate, their personal identity number;

3. stated the constituency or the area in the home state where they were last listed in the electoral roll; and
4. given assurance that they will not vote in another Member State.

Notification that someone has been included in an electoral roll pursuant to this section shall be sent to the competent authority in the State where the voter is a citizen.

Voters who have been included in an electoral roll pursuant to this section will remain there until they are deleted from it by personal request or the conditions for entitlement to vote are no longer satisfied.
