Today's the election day for the county/municipal councils around the country. In Oslo you vote twice today; one vote for the city council and one for the district you live in. Oslo is devided in 15 districts, and each has it's own city ward council.
For the first time you need to bring an ID to be allowed to vote.
I did my duty quite early today to avoid the long lines you can expect if you vote in the afternoon. The election is open from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. The results will probably not be ready until tomorrow. We have quite a few parties to choose from, so usually we end up with councils mixed with politicians from several/most of these, leaving it hard to get clear majority. Compromise agreements usually means noone is satisfied, at least that's my view on politics in this country.
