On November 22, we vote for the national parliament. In this voting help, we created an overview of all electable political parties and all female candidates per party. Next to the candidate list, we added the most recent polls to every candidate list. This way, you can see which women really need your vote for a chance to be elected. Would you like to freshen up your knowledge on smart voting for women? Underneath the voting help, we repeat the explanation!

Do you want more women to be elected? Don’t automatically vote for the first woman on the list; thanks to her high position, she often gets elected anyway. Look a little lower, at the women who really need your vote. Voting smart goes like this:
STEP 2: HOW MANY SEATS?
Look at the polls to see approximately how many seats your party is likely to get. You will also find this indicated in our voting help.
STEP 3: VOTE FOR A WOMAN, LOWER ON THE LIST
For example, is it estimated that your party will get 5 seats? Then vote for a woman from number 5 or lower. She really needs your vote to become elected. By following this strategy, you might help your candidate to a seat in parliament!
