10.8 Elections

The arranging of polling stations in connection with elections in the sending State is normally one of the recurrent functions of a mission. No license is generally required when a mission opens a polling station for its citizens in Sweden in connection with elections taking place in the sending State. The mission should inform the Stockholm County Police well in advance of when it is to open a polling station. When arranging voting facilities located outside the premises of the mission or the consular premises in Sweden, the local police authority in the relevant area should always be informed.
