After two weeks of advance voting, 197,953 advance votes on paper were registered on Sunday 25th August. When early votes and the number of voters who voted via internet are included, this means that 237 638 voters have been voting already, said the Ministry of Local Government and Regional Development, in a press release.
There are around 3,641,000 qualified voters to the general election. Of those around 250 000 are living in one of the twelve municipalities that are testing online voting via the Internet.
This is the first time that the ministry can report daily on the number of ballots cast. This is because all Norwegian municipalities have begun using the new electronic voting system administration EVA. The Ministry will therefore regularly publish figures of the votes in advance received up to the election day.
