About the statistics

The statistics show persons entitled to vote, turnout and results by parties for the Sameting election. Time series from 2005.

Definitions

Definitions of the main concepts and variables

To be able to vote at the Sameting election, one must register oneself in the Same census. All Norwegian Sami persons 18 years or older in the election year, are entitled to register themselves in the census. One can demand the registration if one declares that one perceives oneself as a Sami person, and if one either a) has the Sami language as the languages spoken at home, or b) one’s parents, grandparents or great-grandparents have had the Sami language as the language spoken at home, or c) is the child of a person registered in the Sami census. Sami persons who are citizens of other Nordic countries, can register themselves in the Sami census if they on 30th of june in the election year are registered as residents of Norway. Sami persons not coming from a Nordic country, can register themselves in the Sami census if they have been registered as residents of Norway in the three last years before election day. The Sami census is linked to the National Registration Office. The registered address on 30th of june in the election year is the one registered in the Sami census, and used at the Sameting elections. At the Samething elections, the country is divided into seven constituencies. In total, 39 representatives are elected from the seven constituencies. This is four less than four years ago.

Accuracy and reliability

Sources of error and uncertainty

Number of votes cast and rejected for some municipalities are uncertain, due to inaccuracies in check offs at the registration. Misunderstandings referring to the concepts rejected voting vs. rejected votes also occur. Rejected voting results from a person appearing, but for various reasons not having his voting approved. No check offs are to be made in the census, and these votes normally are not to be included in the statistics. They are, however, registered, and in some instances wrongly under rejected votes (voting slips). When auditing, votes cast and rejected in some instances must be corrected adjusted according to judgment, where the municipalities themselves are unable to discover the mistakes.
