You will have to ask personally in any post office for the form (Manilva, Sabinillas). An identity card is compulsory to show when requesting to vote by mail. The period is from the 29th March to the 12th May.
·Complete the form with the address where you would like to receive the documentation. It has to be an address in Spain, it cannot be sent abroad.
·Sign it and give it back to the post officer that will confirm your identity (your passport, residence or any ID card with a photograph will do). The post officer will stamp the form and will sent it by registered mail (free of charge) to the Oficina del Censo (Census Office)
