vote

If you’re an American in Stockholm it may not be too late for you to vote today.

I woke up scared today. I know two African Americans who live outside of the US who have not voted in their State’s midterm elections. I feel like I have failed and it makes me cry real tears. But if you haven’t voted and woke up today wanting to, depending on your State you can fax your ballot in today. I had to use the FWAB because mine never arrived. Find out here: Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB)
 
The FWAB serves as a backup ballot if the voter does not receive the requested absentee ballot in time. FVAP.gov offers a FWAB online assistant that guides users through the form-completion process, as well as, a fillable PDF form of the FWAB for download.

You must use your State Instructions when using the Fillable PDF to complete your FWAB (https://www.fvap.gov/vao/vag)

The Latest Good, Bad and Ugly News from Sweden

The Good

Sweden

Now There Are Plans for ‘e-Krona’ in Cash-Shy Sweden

Sweden is becoming increasingly cashless. Credit and debit cards are now by far the most common mode of payment while mobile payments have become as common as cash. A parliament committee has proposed that the largest banks should be forced to handle cash in an effort to halt the development. This year, only 13 percent of Swedes paid for their most recent purchase in cash, down from 39 percent in 2010. Read the full story.

The Bad

Europe

Sweden predicted to face downturn after economic boom.

According to the National Institute on Economic Research, Sweden’s growth rate will peak at 2.4 percent this year and then come to a halt in 2019. Moreover, while the unemployment rate is expected to continue to sink in the coming year and dip to 6.2 percent, it will then start to rise, the Institute’s latest prognosis states.

The battle for which party will lead the next Swedish government drags on. Support for the far-right Sweden Democrats rose significantly in the election on 9 September (it is now the third-biggest party with 17.5% of votes and 62 parliamentary seats), while mainstream parties both on the left and the right declined.
