2014 was a major electoral year for the Swedes. Indeed on 25th May 2014 they elected their MEPs, as did all European citizens; on 14th September 2014 they would be electing the 349 members of the Riksdag (the Swedish parliament) as well as the local representatives (town councillors and county councillors). Swedes living abroad were allowed to vote in the general elections. In 2010 one quarter of them were registered on the electoral rolls but only one fifth of them turned out to vote.
