About the statistics

Estimated figures by April for persons entitled to vote in the upcoming national election. Disaggregated by sex, age, country background and county. Time series from 2009.

Definitions

Definitions of the main concepts and variables

Electoral roll: List of the number of persons entitled to vote. In the electoral proposal persons entitled to vote will be entered in the municipality in which they were registered as living on 31 March of the election year. People who move after 31 March may demand to be listed in the electoral role of their new municipality.

Persons entitled to vote: Election Act Section 3, cf. Constitution Articles 50 and 53 lay down the following conditions for the right to vote in a Storting election: a) Listed in the electoral roll in the municipality

b) Norwegian citizen, cf. Norwegian Nationality Act of 8 December 1950

c) Must turn 18 in the course of the election year

d) Norwegian citizens who have more than 10 years of registered continuous foreign residence behind them must apply to be listed in the electoral roll

e) The right to vote must not have been lost, cf. Constitution Article 53

Norwegian citizens with an immigrant background who are entitled to vote: This category includes both immigrants and Norwegian-born to immigrant parents. Immigrants are persons born in a foreign country by foreign-born parents who have moved to Norway. Norwegian-born to immigrant parents is persons born in Norway by foreign parents, and also with four grandparents born in a foreign country.

Accuracy and reliability

Sources of error and uncertainty

The estimates are based on withdrawals from the population system in March/April of the election year. The number of how many will be granted the right to vote on the basis of a change in citizenship is based on data material from the previous year. The same applies to the number of deaths in the period until the election. The estimate for the number of persons entitled to vote thus depends on the deviations from last year's figures, the greater the deviation the larger the margin of error. This applies particularly to the number of naturalizations, as these figures vary considerably.
