The CDA minister herself looked at various places in the country today. “I saw that myself today during my visit to Amersfoort, Utrecht and Etten-Leur. There I spoke with volunteers, municipal employees, mayors and voters.” Thanks to the votes of these voters, the more than 8,500 elected councilors can get to work for the next 4 years, says the minister.

Bruins-Slot acknowledges that it was ‘a big job’: “Finding enough polling station members was a big job for a number of municipalities in the run-up to the elections. Many municipalities also had to deal with cancellations or cancellations of polling station members at the last minute.”

Extra attention was also paid to accessibility. “I am also pleased to notice that more and more municipalities are providing extra accessible polling stations for voters with a disability. I would like to thank everyone, municipalities and volunteers, for their efforts during these elections. And I wish the counters who are still in the process of counting the votes good luck.”

Three days

The elections are spread over three days, because it was also possible to vote on Monday and Tuesday. During the previous elections – last year’s parliamentary elections – there was still a lot of blundering. Postal voting – for vulnerable voters – turned out to be unclear for many people. At the time, even tough action had to be taken when tens of thousands of votes were declared invalid.

In several provincial cities, the turnout in municipal elections had risen to over 40 percent around 6 p.m. 45.6 percent of the people of Groningen had already gone to the polls, in Nijmegen 46.3 percent of the inhabitants had cast their vote. In Harderwijk, almost half of the inhabitants had already voted, 49.5 percent to be precise.
