I like choice. I don’t need 55 different options, but a few is preferable. The video above from a cool cocktail bar in Malmö might seem off-topic for this post, but it was meant to help visualize choice.
And folks, if you’re in Sweden and carry a Swedish passport, today it’s time to choose. It’s election day in Sweden
I already voted on August 24 when I stood in the polling both and put three ballots in an envelope and then handed it over to a sweet older woman at Kockum Fritid’s voting office. The lady checked my identity, registered my name on a list and then she put the envelope in a ballot box.
Regardless of what we think of the other parties, we are privileged to be able choose between several and vote for the ones we believe most in. Hopefully you will find one or more that represents your opinions and who gets the confidence of your vote.
Given the fact that democracy is failing in many countries today, the election in Sweden also fills a symbolic function.By voting, you show that we believe in a free and open society, which in turn sends a very clear signal to the rest of the world that in Sweden, we safeguard our democratic right – and civil liability – to choose who we best think represents our views on how to manage Malmö, Skåne and Sweden in the future.Tne
