Palma.—Local political parties will be trying to court the non-Spanish vote at the local elections next year but face an uphill battle as a result of the low turnout at last month´s European elections.
Just 400 non-Spaniards voted in the European elections in Calvia, one of the municipalities with the highest number of non-Spaniards residents from European Union countries. Across the Balearics the figure is believed to be just 1,000 people.
Foreign residents from European Union countries can vote in local and European elections but so far they haven´t made much of a difference to the local political landscape despite the efforts of all the major political parties.
