Who can vote in Sweden?

All Swedish citizens aged 18 or over are eligible to vote. In addition, all citizens of EU countries resident in Sweden are eligible to vote in Sweden.

However, citizens of other EU member states have the option of voting in Sweden or in their home countries – but not both.

Thus, the Election Authority has sent out notices to all non-Swedish EU citizens living in the country allowing them to indicate their preference. These forms should be completed and returned by May 8th at the latest.
