In 2015, every foreigner above the age of 18, who has lived in Norway for more than three years, can vote in the municipality and county elections. In the same manner as Norwegians may vote in some elections in other European countries.

InitiativDuring 2015, there will be several elections in Europe and millions of people will have the opportunity to shape their everyday life and shape how the political system is governed on a national, regional and local level. The European Movement wishes to highlight how the EU and citizens of Europe affects everyday life in Norway, including elections, and vice versa.

During August and September there will be articles published in Norwegian, English or Polish about the democratic rights in the different countries and what is important for those who can and want to vote.
