    This map shows a result of about 35% for the combined left, 40% if you count the Greens. So, um, yeah, sure.

    The Social Democrats were ahead in all but one of the diocese, going by your map. I would call that dominated.

    Plurality voteshare and Proportional Representation though.

    Basically the Swedish Left is united behind one major party and some minnows, the right is heavily divided.

    1. That doesn't show we're big, just that the opposition is divided.
    2. This isn't an FPTP election. Stop looking at the colours.

    I should also point out a thing I really couldn't show on the map - turnout in this election was 12,8%.

    Actually, who is allowed to vote in this election?

    @Utgard96 TIL that Sweden's Lutheran Church has an assembly of elected members.

    Those church-only parties are fascinating. Do they campaign in the same way state-based political parties do, with manifestos and membership and branding? Or are they really just informal "nomination groups"?

    They're probably more active in campaigning than the main parties, which admittedly isn't saying much for Church elections.

    It is worth noting that many of these groups are in fact strongly connected to "ordinary" political parties, who have decided not to participate in Church elections in their own name out of principle, but whose groups still continue under new names with the party's informal support. So the Bourgeois Alternative (which sounds less ridiculous in Swedish) is connected to the Moderates, the Free Liberals are connected to the Liberals, and so on. The only truly "Church-only" groups are the Open Church (liberal, left-wing), Outspoken/Fearless Church (very, very conservative - their slogan is "a church that dares to be a church"), and POSK (which has members across the political spectrum, and stridently maintains that it's not a party, just a loose association of people who want to be elected without participating in party politics).

    And of course, yesterday's elections. It's worth pointing out that these are preliminary results - I'll go through the final results and change it if I can be arsed.

    Is that the Left and Independents making gains?

    Yes, while the Greens and the not-Moderates are losing big. I assume it's tied to a) polls, and b) the general tendency of groups tied to parties that aren't the parties themselves to crash and burn, particularly if you can't easily tell what party they're tied to.
