Election authority orders ballot envelopes

Because of the possibility of a snap election, the Swedish Election Authority has already ordered the printing of 6 million ballot envelopes, newspaper Dagens Nyheter reports.

The agency says the bill for last September’s national and local elections was around SEK 250,000. A new election would not cost as much, as it would only be for parliament.

In addition to the envelopes, there would also need to be new ballots, updated lists of eligible voters, and costs for public information. The authority’s Hans Lejsäter tells Dagens Nyheter “We’re in full swing working out what material needs to be produced…The ballot envelopes take the longest time to print, so we have to order them in good time.”

The election agency says that in the event that there is not a snap election, the envelopes could always be used for a later balloting.
