“Your vote is your voice. Be heard!!!”

Municipal and districts council elections in Norway today. As a foreigner who can’t vote at the parliamentary election it always feels especially important to me to vote at the election in Oslo. Voting rights, especially voting rights for woman still ain’t the usual thing in this world. In Norway woman got the right to vote in 1913. In Germany where I grow up woman got the right to vote in 1919.
There are still countries where woman are not allowed to vote, to be elected, to go to school.
So to have the right to vote is not only a right, it’s a privilege.
