As I mentioned in an earlier post, this one here > Apathy in NL… Oh! Selfies! taking a selfie, or a #stemfie in a Dutch polling booth isn’t illegal. The word stemfie comes from the Dutch word to vote, stemmen, and selfie, and it seems to be a ploy to get young people out to vote, because face it. Here in NL voter turn out will be a low one.
As you can see from the photies we are spoiled for choice. We get to choose one candidate from 345 standing in 19 parties.
Not all the people on the list are actually standing for election. Some are just on the list to show their support for that particular party and are placed at the bottom of the list where they have no chance of being elected. Which makes it very tempting to vote for them.
Which party did I vote for?
Tsk, it’s a secret ballot!
Just saying I voted for a social liberal party in a tactical vote against a Redneck party.
