Håll ihop mot racism

Wow, lots has happened since I posted the exit poll preliminary results after the Swedish election on Sunday, September 14, 2014.

Here are the updated numbers for the various parties (note that these still aren’t the final numbers, as absentee ballots are still being counted, but the numbers shouldn’t change too much at this point).

Early results in the Swedish election

The polling stations in the Swedish elections just closed at 8 pm, Swedish time (1 pm CST in Minnesota). The results of the exit polls are traditionally released at the same time as the polls close. In Sweden, the exit polls are generally pretty accurate predictors of the final results. More official results will be released at 9:30 pm in Sweden (2:30 pm in Minnesota) from Swedish Television, the state television channel.
