There are 18 voting locations spread throughout the country from Karesuando in the north to Stockholm in the south.
Nine parties are vying for seats in the Sami Parliament. The parties cannot be classified as left or right or center in the traditional sense.
Rather the parties differ from each other based on their stances on specific issues that are important to the Sami people.
One big issue revolves around what rights Sami reindeer herders have compared to non-Sami reindeer herders.
Land and water rights, as well as the environment and questions around what it means to be a Sami, are also important issues in this year’s election.
