Odd factlet out of Sweden

"Every Swedish citizen plus foreigners who have lived for a certain number of years in Sweden are allowed to vote. There's no disenfranchisement of groups because of criminal convictions or other reason and thus less risk for manipulation and arbitrariness. Unless you are judged to be out of your mind you can vote, and if you are, an administrator is appointed to vote in a way that is supposed to be in your interest. There's no registering to vote. As a citizen you are in the voting list and you are mailed all information from the various alternatives and a card proving your right to vote and in which election(s). (New immigrants are allowed to vote in local matters only.)"

Unless you are judged to be out of your mind you can vote, and if you are, an administrator is appointed to vote in a way that is supposed to be in your interest.

Ehh? In their best interest, and these trick cyclists decide upon what is good for you. Dammit why they don't just abolish the polls and farm them out to persons better qualified.
