Explainer – “stemmespild”


Explainer – “stemmespild”: or “wasted votes” means votes given for political parties that don’t manage to pass the minimum 2% border (roughly 70.000 votes). An independent candidate needs roughly 15.000 to 20,000 votes to get elected. There are two red parties and two blue parties that are in danger of not passing the 2% border – Alternativet; Frie Grønne (red) and DF; Kristendemokraterne (blue). If you pass the 2% border you get 4 seats in Folketinget (Danish Parliament).
