Several municipalities are resorting to creative solutions during this year’s “pandemic” parliamentary elections. In Oslo, people will be able to vote from their car at drive-in premises if they are in quarantine.

“Everyone who wants to vote must be allowed to vote, regardless of whether they are ill, in quarantine, or in isolation,” the communications manager for elections in Oslo, Ingvild Åsgard, told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).

Oslo Municipality has set up a record number of premises for advance voting for those who are afraid of ending up in quarantine or becoming ill on election day.

One of the premises allows people to vote from their car.

“If you are in quarantine, you can vote via drive-in at Valle Hovin. Then you vote in your car, and then the election staff comes and takes your vote through the window,” Åsgård noted.
