dc.description Denna rapport fokuserar på valregistrering och valdeltagande i Sverige, där det senaste valet hölls den 9 september 2018. Det ger ett historiskt perspektiv på registrering och valdeltagande bland utlandsfödda väljare (icke-medborgare och svenska medborgare) i lokala och regionala val. I en handfull kommuner finns ett betydande andel icke-svenska väljare med rösträtt. Men sannolikheten att rösta är större hos invandrare som har fått svenska medborgarskap - vilket kan leda till underrepresentation av icke-svenska väljare i kommun-och landstingsval. Ett annat fokus i rapporten ligger på valdeltagande vid riksdagsvalen hos svenska medborgare som är folkbokförda utomlands. Antalet väljare folkbokförda utomlands har ökat i varje val sedan 1968. Även om deras andel av alla röstberättigade är relativt låg, kan detta påverka mandatfördelningen i riksdagen. 1 en_US
dc.description.abstract This Key Country report focuses on electoral registration and turnout in Sweden, where the most recent general election was held on 9 September 2018. It provides a historical perspective on patterns of electoral registration and turnout among foreignborn voters (non-citizens and Swedish citizens) in local and regional elections. In a handful of municipalities, a significant proportion of the electorate comprises non- Swedish citizens with voting rights. However, the likelihood of voting is higher among foreign-born voters who have acquired Swedish citizenship – which potentially leaves non-citizen residents under-represented in local and regional representative organs. A second focus is on non-resident Swedish citizens in the country’s national elections. The number of Swedish voters abroad has increased in every election since 1968. Though a very small proportion of the total electorate, their ballots make a slight difference to the distribution of seats in the Swedish parliament, the Riksdag. en_US
