Referendums[edit]

In connection with the 2019 European Parliament elections, two local referendums were held in Sweden. In Svedala municipality, citizens took a stand on whether a prison should be established there, with 67.5% no. (A NIMBY case, the government has the responsibility for prisons, and residents want criminals to be imprisoned, but somewhere else).[26] In the municipalities of Borgholm and Mörbylånga, residents voted on a proposal for a merger to the municipality of Öland, which gave no in both municipalities.[27]
