You have the right to vote!

 Can I vote?If one of the following applies to you, you can vote in the coming municipal elections on the 26th of May 2018:

  • Nordic nationals 18 and olderhave the right to vote after three consecutive years of legal residence. For the elections on May 26th, this means that you must have been a resident since before May 26th, 2015.
  • All other foreign nationals 18 and olderhave the right to vote after five consecutive years of legal residence. For the elections of May 26th, this means that you must have been a resident since before May 26th 2013.

Why should I vote?

Maybe you are asking yourself, why bother voting? What does it really matter to me? Well, it matters a lot. In a small society like Iceland, every single vote counts, so much more than in other countries. Moreover, municipal elections are about what really matters to most of us. Your vote will have an impact on deciding who will be running the city and making the decisions that will affect the lives of all of us. Local elections are directly connected to the schools our children go to, housing for us and our families, public transport, social welfare and so on. These are the things we cast our vote for on May 26th!

Why should I vote for Samfylkingin?

Samfylkingin is what most of us know as Social Democrats. Immigrant issues are really what the core of Social Democracy is all about: equal opportunities for each and every one in our society. At Samfylkingin, we believe in social fairness: providing quality education not just for the rich, making sure housing is affordable for all, improving public transport, ensuring there is the same pay for the same job regardless of gender and nationality, and most importantly, building Reykjavík together. This is your home, too!

At Samfylkingin we embrace diversity, we believe that diversity make us stronger and better. But we also believe in what unites us, we care for our families and social justice. We will make sure all voices are heard in building a fair society through intercultural dialogue and understanding.
