Dutch general election schedule 2017   

General elections are planned to be held in the Netherlands on 15 March 2017 to elect all 150 members of the House of Representatives.

The House of Representatives, or Second Chamber (Tweede Kamer) is composed of 150 seats elected by proportional representation in a single nationwide constituency, with a legal threshold of 0.67%, and residuals assigned by the D'Hondt method. Electronic voting has been banned since 2007 and votes must be cast with a red pencil. Preliminary results were published on 15 March, but the official result will not be announced until 16:00 CET on 21 March. The polling firm Ipsos released an exit poll as soon as polls closed, which indicated that the VVD won 31 seats, the CDA, D66, and PVV each won 19 seats, GroenLinks won 16, SP won 14, PvdA won 9, CU won 6, PvdD won 5, 50PLUS won 4, DENK and SGP each won 3, and FvD won 2. The exit poll also recorded a turnout of 82%, which would be the highest since 1981 if confirmed.

Preliminary results and exit polls for the 2017 election showed that the VVD lost some seats, but retained their position as largest party, while the PvdA saw a massive loss in vote share and seats, failing to win a single municipality for the first time in the party's history. The Party for Freedom (PVV) made slight gains to reach second place, with the CDA and D66 also increasing their number of seats. At least four partners will be needed for a coalition with a parliamentary majority. Current results are only preliminary; the official result will not be announced until 21 March. Elected MPs will take their seats on 23 March.
