Politics and the municipality

Sweden is divided into 290 municipalities. Swedish municipalities have a great autonomy and you pay local taxes to the municipality.

There are elections in the municipality every four years. At the same time as you vote for which politicians you would like to elect to the Riksdag (the Swedish Parliament) and the County Council, you can also choose your representatives for your municipality.
