People in quarantine can vote via adapted polling stations, while people in isolation can vote from home – but they have to hurry.

Temporary legislative changes enable municipalities to facilitate the voting process during the pandemic, director of the Norwegian Electoral Directorate Bjørn Berg told NRK Nyhetsmorgen on Monday.

“Those who are in quarantine can contact their municipality and be told where and how to vote,” Berg said.

Separate voting rooms are arranged for those in quarantine. The director of the Norwegian Electoral Directorate also issued a reminder to people in isolation – they can contact their municipality to send them a voice recorder home so that they can vote.

“What is important to remember is that you must contact the municipality and ask for it before 10 o’clock today,” Berg said.

On Friday, preliminary figures from the Norwegian Electoral Directorate showed that 1,645,762 people had voted in advance. That amounts to 42.3% of all eligible voters.
