If you are busy on election day, keep in mind that Friday is the last opportunity to vote in advance before election day on Monday.

Up to and including Tuesday this week, 1,193,307 eligible voters had voted in advance. That corresponds to 30.7% of all those entitled to vote in this year’s election.

“Election night may be short this year,” Johan Giertsen of Poll of polls told NTB after it became clear on Tuesday that a record number of people had voted in advance in this year’s parliamentary elections.

The election researchers NTB has spoken to believe that the large proportion of advance votes means that the election result could be clear faster than usual on Monday night.

Last opportunity

For those who intend to vote in advance, the deadline is now approaching. Friday, September 10, is the last day it is possible to vote in advance in this year’s election. If you have not voted during Friday, the last opportunity to vote during this year’s parliamentary elections is the actual election day on Monday, September 13.

If you have other obligations on September 13, you may want to visit one of the polling stations in the municipality where you live before the advance voting ends. 

However, 159 municipalities also have open polling stations on Sunday, September 12.

If you are ill or disabled, it is also possible to vote at home or where you live. The deadline for applying to the municipality to be able to vote at home expires at 10 o’clock on Friday.
