Abstract [en]

Alongside the explicit voting restrictions in Swedish law, many groups of voters have faced practi- cal obstacles to exercising their voting rights. This article approa- ches this issue by surveying legisla- tion and political debate around early voting or voting by proxy after the suffrage reform of 1919– 1921. The article explores the ratio- nale behind the exceptions in Swedish law to the principle of per- sonal attendance in the designated voting district on election day. It concludes with a speculative dis- cussionofhowtherelativelyvivid interest in this issue over time can be explained. The question of early voting appears to be entangled with fundamental aspects of democracy, such as tacit norms for citizenship and political represen- tation.
