Tactical Voting in Swedish Elections : - Does it Exist and Did it Affect the Swedish General Elections in 2010? (English)
Abstract [en]

The number of parties in the Swedish parliament has increased from five to eight during the last twenty years. The political agenda is still based on a two-block system with the consequences that the number of parties in each block has increased. To be represented in the parliament, a party needs at least four per cent of the total votes in the election. If only one party fails to achieve that, the whole block will lose the election to the other block. This could encourage voters to vote tactically for the small parties in the block to ensure that the block wins the election. The purpose of my essay is to study the last election to see whether or not the voters did use tactical voting as a tool to make it possible for their block to win the election. This has been done by comparing the results in the elections to the Riksdag and to those of the municipal councils in Stockholm, Göteborg and Malmö. These results were then compared to the major polls before the election to see if there were any signs of tactical voting.
