How to get a Padron certificate in ROJALES

The nearest UK equivalent to the Padron is the Electoral Register, a list of residents in a town or area. The complete name in Spanish is Certificado de Empadronamiento, but most people just call it the Padron. Registering on the Padron means you’re officially living in that town and are therefore  “Empadronado.” 

As well as being essential for many administrative procedures, registration also benefits your local town – the more people registered, the more money can be requested from the central government.
