Description

The third Swedish election to the EU-parliament was held on the 13th of June 2004. As in connection to all general elections and referenda held in Sweden since 1956, an election study was carried out in connection to this election. The main subject of the survey was the European Union and the respondent´s attitudes toward the Swedish EU membership, but the survey also included a number of questions asked in one or several of the Swedish election studies.

Purpose:

Explain why people vote as they do and why an election ends in a particular way. Track and follow trends in the Swedish electoral democracy and make comparisons with other countries.
