No sanctions for Belgians who do not voteTuesday, 14 May 2019 10:41
However, the sanctions are never carried out. "The presidents of the polling stations send the lists of absent voters to the justice of the peace. They keep them for six months and then destroy them according to the guidelines of the state archivist," the Federal government department for Justice explained to Het Laatste Nieuws.
"The lists of absent voters are therefore not submitted to the public prosecutors' offices. Within the Public Prosecution Service the directive applies to prosecute only the absent presidents and co-presidents of the voting and counting offices," he added.
