How about voting in the ovember 19 council and regional elections?

The low foreigners turn-out is a topical issue - DF wants to ban foreigners voting, (no big surprises), Lasse Jensen (CpH mayors son) is pushing to improve foreigners rights in Denmark and the Integration and Social Affairs Ministry has a campaign to encourage immigrants to vote in the November 19 elections after a low turnout four years ago.

Why am I pushing this - four years ago I lobbied to change the law to make it easier for some foreigners to vote, and the Danish government agreed to make the changes - In that great Danish way , they did not forget the promise and made the change happen, which I think deserves a touch of respect by voting this time around.

If you don't know what to do, check out the Copenhagen Post website for info’s-guide-voting-local-elections

Its a cultural experience!
