Abstract [en]

Immature adults: On legal minority as a ground for voting restrictions

The last voting restriction to be abolished in Sweden was that which pertained to adults that had been legally declared to be minors. It was connected to meritocratic arguments about democratic maturity, rational thinking and sufficient knowledge as necessary conditions for suffrage, as well as to arguments that voters had to be independent. The restriction disappeared as a result of the fact that the possibility to declare people legally minor was abolished in 1989. Only then was the right to vote extended to all adult Swedish citizens.
