Early Votes for EU Election

Published onsdag 27 maj 2009 kl 11.36

Swedes are voting ahead of time for the European Parliament elections, in unexpected numbers.

The official Swedish election day is June 7th, but polling stations for early voting have been open since last Wednesday. According to the Swedish Election Authority, 12 days before the election, 95,000 votes had already been registered, and a number of municipalities haven’t filed their reports.

That’s almost twice as many advanced votes as for the last EU elections. Political scientists say this could indicate that turn-out will be higher than expected.
