Matters of everyday life are decided by municipalities
Many decisions made in municipalities directly affect how a person’s life goes. That is why we want to play our part in ensuring that the issues that significantly affect the lives of PAM members be given attention in the 2021 municipal elections.
Municipalities are largely responsible for basic services, the state of our living environment and regional employment development. In a prominent municipality, service workers can have a good life. They can go to work, live and have hobbies. If they have children, they get a care place, a good school and the right to develop in their spare time. You can read more about our themes on election here.
As a PAM member standing in the elections, you will receive information and tips from the union for your own election work.
PAM encourages all its members to run in municipal elections
PAM encourages all its members to run in municipal elections so that the needs of people working in the service sector are better taken into account in political decision-making on a local level.
In a municipal election, citizens of other countries
who have had a municipality of residence in Finland for
at least two years have the right to vote.
A candidate in the elections must be a person
- who has the right to vote in municipal elections,
- whose municipality of residence is the municipality in question,
- who is not under guardianship.

You can find more information about the municipal elections and how to become a candidate on the websites of the various parties and on the vaalit.fi website.
