An analysis has revealed that as many as 15 percent of Copenhagen residents eligible to vote in Denmarks upcoming municipal and regional elections are citizens of countries other than Denmark.
The report, published by Copenhagen-based thinktank Tænketanken Europa, also shows that EU citizens alone make up eight percent of the non-Danish citizens eligible to vote in Copenhagen.
Citizens of other EU countries plus Norway and Iceland, as well as other non-Danish nationals who have lived in the country for three years or more prior to the election, are all eligible to participate in the November 21st municipal and regional polls.
With 15 percent of foreign-national voters, Copenhagen is the municipality with the largest proportion of EU citizens amongst its eligible voters, according to the analysis.
When voters are considered in terms of regions (regioner in Danish) supra-municipal administrative areas primarily concerned with health care, welfare and social development the Capital City Region (Region Hovedstaden) also has the largest proportion of EU citizens of any part of Denmark, at 5.5 percent. That compares to 2.5 percent EU citizens in the population of the neighboring Zealand Region the lowest figure in Denmark.
High numbers of non-national voters mean these groups have could a potentially significant influence on election outcomes.

I seem to recall Danish Muslims rioting against a cartoon a few years ago, setting fires, etc.

Hahaha . Self-loathing nitwits .
Danish elections are always held at breakfast time.
Another EU driven policy meant to destroy national sovereignty.
Precisely. Anything in the way of “ever closer union” must be steamrolled and disintegrated.
Too kind to suicidal lunatics
