In this article I aim to explore whether the Romanian pattern of voting rights allocation in the case of migrants is compatible with the most salient accounts of principles on bounding the demos. I draw on the „all-affected interests” principle, the „all-subjected” principle, and the „citizenship stakeholders” principle, arguing that none of the policy implications stemming from these principles correspond to the Romanian pattern. Thus, I conclude that to the extent that this pattern could be normatively justified, such a justification cannot be provided by the main theories in the literature on the democratic boundary
