Apolitical Swedes more likely to want option to vote online in national elections

Monday 25 June 2018 | 20:45 CET | News
Swedish internet foundation IIS said in its report 'Swedes and the internet – election special 2018', that 71 percent of Swedes go online to get political information. One in five has posted a political opinion on the internet, up from 13 percent in the previous election year. Fifty-one percent would like to have the option to vote online, and this is a more popular idea among people who say they are not interested in politics, than those who say they are.
