Putting out ballot papers
For the parties that have obtained more than 1% of the votes in the parliamentary election, the election officials are responsible for putting out party ballot papers in the polling stations and voting places.
This applies to parliamentary, municipal and county council elections. These parties must themselves request, a certain period of time before the election, that their ballots be put out.
For elections to municipal and county councils, parties who are represented have the right to have party ballot papers put out in the polling stations and voting locations in the respective municipality or the county.
The election officials also put out blank ballot papers for all elections at all places where it is possible to vote.
However name ballot papers are put out by the parties themselves.
For elections to the European Parliament the election officials are responsible for putting out name ballot papers for the parties that have received at least 1% of the votes in Sweden at one of the two most recent elections to the European Parliament at all places where it is possible to vote if the party has only one name ballot paper that applies to the entire country. These parties must themselves request, a certain period of time before the election, that their ballot papers be put out.
