Voting ballots used in the referendum.

The Arenys de Munt query on Catalonia independence was a municipal non-binding query promoted by the Moviment Arenyenc per l'Autodeterminació (Arenyenc Movement for Self-determination) held on Arenys de Munt on 13 September 2009. The query was formulated exclusively for residents of this village on the following question: Està d'acord que Catalunya esdevingui un Estat de dret, independent, democràtic i social, integrat a la Unió Europea? (Do you agree on Catalonia becoming an independent, democratic and social State of law, integrated in the European Union?).

This query was the first democratic one on Catalonia independence and, despite being municipal and symbolic, had a remarkable influence on Catalan and Spanish politics.[1][2][3]
