All adult citizens present on the electoral lists are allowed to vote. EU citizens residing in Italy can also vote for municipal councils, after registering with the electoral lists. In municipalities with up to 15,000 inhabitants there is no ballot (except in the case of a tie between the two most voted candidates for mayors) and no separate vote, i.e. the possibility of voting at the same time for a list that supports a possible mayor and a candidate for mayor from another side. The candidate who obtains the highest number of votes is elected mayor. Only in the event of absolute parity of votes will a ballot be held on Sunday 26 June. In municipalities over 15,000 inhabitants, the candidate who obtains the absolute majority of valid votes (at least 50% plus one) is elected mayor in the first round.
