I was fairly surprised when a few weeks ago I received a letter in the post telling me I was eligible to vote in the up-coming local elections (9th April) - and all in English, no less!
And, if like me, you want to follow the elections and get more information on the parties and candidates, you'll be glad to hear that YLE is doing a sterling job in collating information and stories in English, as well as hosting a live debate with candidates from each party.
The debate takes place at 2pm this Wednesday (22nd) and you can stay up to date with the debate, as well as get a reminder just before it begins, by following the Facebook event.
To get a great run-down on the elections, including party/candidate information, and even how and where to find out if your eligible to vote, check out YLE's coverage on their website or follow them on Facebook and Twitter. You can even follow the hashtags #useyourvote and #kuntavaalit.
