Article 47

Time period for advance voting The advance voting shall begin on the 11th day prior to the polling day and end outside Finland on the 8th day and in Finland on the 5th day prior to the polling day. On board a Finnish ship, the advance voting may, with the exception of the second round in the Presidential election, begin already on the 18th day prior to the polling day. A general advance polling station in Finland is open for advance voting on all days in the time period referred to in subsection 1, unless for special reasons otherwise laid down by a decision of the municipal executive board. The period of time allowed for advance voting in Finnish diplomatic missions and their offices may, as provided by Government decree, be shorter than what is provided in subsection 1.
