A voter may cast his/her vote by absentee voting once there are eight weeks remaining until election day.
In the event that the election day has been decided with shorter notice than eight weeks, a voter shall then have the right to cast his/her vote on the working day following the decision on the election date.
Where elections are unrestricted a voter casting a ballot in absentee voting shall write on the ballot the full names and addresses of the regular councillors and alternates he/she elects. The alternates shall be listed in the order in which the voter wishes them to come in as replacements.
In other respects the Act on Elections to the Alþingi shall apply mutatis mutandis to absentee voting.
