Voting in Costa Rica for the first time – or voting from abroad? Tell us your story

January 30, 2018

Will this coming Sunday’s presidential and legislative elections in Costa Rica be your first time voting in this country? Are you a young voter, a new Costa Rican citizen, or someone who has been eligible to vote in the past but hasn’t exercised that right until now?

Or are you a Costa Rican exercising your relatively new right to vote from abroad?

We’d love to hear from you. Please contact us via Facebook or at elang@ticotimes.net with your comments, photos or videos for two stories we plan to publish next week: one on first-time voters’ experiences, and another on Ticos voting from around the world.
