SD’s ballot papers missing at a polling station

When the polling station at the Annedals School in Gothenburg opened, the Sweden Democrats’ party papers were nowhere to be found. It was only when SVT News called more than two hours later that SD ballot papers were added to the others.

“This is extremely serious and we will get to the bottom of this,” says Jörgen Fogelklou, the chairman of SD in Gothenburg.

Election workers working in the polling rooms are responsible for ensuring that there are ballot papers available for all parties that have received more than one percent of the votes throughout the country during any of the two most recent parliamentary elections. With regard to the actual ballots, it is up to the parties themselves to make sure they are distributed to the various polling stations (throughout the country). However, in the polling station at the Annedals school in Gothenburg, the Swedish Democrats’ ballots were not put out along with the other parties’.

Bill Werngren, electoral manager of the city of Gothenburg:

“This is extremely disturbing. The election authority is required to ensure that everything is done to the letter. Whether it is deliberate tampering or a mistake, we do not know. But it IS strange,” says Jörgen Fogelklou.

It was only when SVT News contacted the election manager in Gothenburg, just over two hours, after the doors were opened at the polling station, that the irregularity was discovered.

“I think it is regrettable that they have left out the Swedish Democrats at this polling station,” said Bill Werngren, electoral manager for the city of Gothenburg.

After a little over two hours

“It has been a bit over two hours since the polling station opened, and you didn’t notice that the ballots were missing before SVT pointed it out. How can that be?”

“We have trained 2,500 people to work at the polling stations, and they have received exactly the same training, but the understanding of the task by these people clearly varied,” said Bill Werngren.

According to him, those working at the polling stations receive training in, among other things, how the ballot papers should stand and exactly what ballot papers they are required to provide, yet the missing Swedish Democrats ballots was not discovered.

“They cannot stand there all the time and check, but it’s unfortunate that they missed this. Then, of course, mistakes can be made.”

Bill Werngren is responsible for 350 polling stations in the city of Gothenburg and, according to him, he has not heard of any other places where ballot papers for a particular party were absent. It is unclear what happened in the case of Annedalsskolan.

“Either there has been a mistake or they were stolen, and it was not discovered until now,” said Bill Werngren.

The chairman of the Swedish Democrats in Gothenburg is very upset about what happened, and has informed the election authorities that the party intends to investigate the issue.

“We will now keep an extra sharp eye out, because this is extremely serious and very remarkable,” says Jörgen Fogelklou.

  1. They voted for a Socialist government years ago. Once they’re in, you can’t get them out. I’m reading almost 9% voted for the Communist Party. And the damned Green Party (aka Socialist/Communist) surpassed the 4% to enter their Parliament.

    And Socialists have police and Army on their side.

    The Swedes are cowards and stupid, regardless of their high level of education. Give it 20 years, the country will be in deep shit.

    • Sweden is a perfect example on why war is a necessary evil. No war since 1814 has produced a society that is spoilt, cowardly and unworldly idealistic as they have NEVER experienced the cost in lives of what they take for granted. In two world wars they made loads of money staying neutral and comfortable and Germany would have never gone to war if it could not use Sweden’s iron ore. Like Switzerland, another land of parasites, they fed off war at no cost to themselves but were quite happy to exploit the advantages of the resulting technology and the massive boost to their economies that neutrality provided. Only Spain exhausted by its civil war deserved neutrality in WW2.
      It is very hard not to have utter contempt for Sweden and Swedes.

      • The Swedes did not have the stomach to vote for change.
        They had their (last) chance and they blew it.
        They won’t get another chance. They are toast.
        Goodbye Sweden. Welcome Swedistan.

  2. Where there are leftists there is corruption, where there are radical leftists there is massive corruption combined with violence.
