National Election Surveys

The Norwegian Election Research Programme was launched in the middle of the 1950's. The programme cooperated with Norsk Gallup Institute A/S for sample survey data collection in the election studies covering the Storting elections in 1957, 1965, 1969 and 1973. Since 1977 the programme has cooperated with Statistics Norway (SSB) for the data collection for these studies. The election studies are intended to give statistical data for research covering elections and political processes in Norway.

In 1983 all foreign citizens was given the same right to vote in local elections. In order to vote one has to be at least 18 years old and a resident in Norway for at least three consecutive years prior to election day. The right to vote only applies for local elections and not Storting elections. Statistics Norway has conducted surveys among foreign citizens with voting rights.
