The elections to the Riksdag and the municipal and county council assemblies will be held on Sunday 14 September 2014. Elections are the most important means by which citizens can influence politics and at the same time demand accountability for the policies that have been pursued. High voter turnout is a sign of a robust and well-functioning democracy. When more people vote, voter participation is more equal and the election results more accurately reflect citizens' views.
