Talk about doing your duty as a citizen… November 13, 2007

Posted by globalizer in Danish, Denmark.

Nothing related to software here at all – just a tidbit from the election in Denmark today:

A woman about to give birth persuaded the ambulance driver to swing by the voting place on the way to the hospital. The supervisors brought the ballot and the ballot box out to the ambulance, so she was able to vote before proceeding to the hospital and giving birth.

That’s the kind of dedication that used to result in voting percentages in the nineties in Denmark. Lately it has dropped down into the upper eighties, but compared to the US it is still pretty good 🙂
