Vantaudu vaaleille discussions offer Vantaa residents unexpected encounters with representatives of political parties. In these encounters, Vantaa candidates of different political parties (1 person / political party) will talk with the public. The parties participating in these events have been chosen by drawing of lots.

During the tours, discussion will be maintained by Mia Lindström, editor-in-chief of Vantaan Sanomat, and journalist Tiina Örn.

The discussions’ contents and themes arise from, among other things, Vantaa’s government program []

In addition, the tour includes Kaikkien Suomi - vai onko? (“Finland for everybody - or not?”), a multicultural election panel arranged by the Advisory Committee for Multicultural Issues.

Youth Election is a national educational voting event where the young are introduced to the election and the candidates

We are pleased to say that altogether 18 City of Vantaa elementary schools and upper secondary education institutions, as well as two youth centers, announced themselves as organizers of the Youth Election in Vantaa. The City of Vantaa wants to support arranging Youth Election as part of its own democracy education for the young and offers participants instructions and support material for arranging the election and handling the matter. In addition, there will be voting booths to create a genuine election atmosphere.

Vantaa youth can familiarize themselves with the election themes also by following Tikkurila lukio’s student association's and Vantaa Youth Council’s joint parliamentary election panel on March 6, at 10:00-11.30. The election panel will be streamed online where everybody can watch it live.

Election seen on the streets of Vantaa more than in previous election years

In addition to centralized election advertising stands, the city is now testing placing stands advertising the coming parliamentary election in other public areas as well, for example, along public streets.

The advertisements are allowed from March 2 to April 2, 2023. The city will not charge any fee for the advertising places.

The advertisers are responsible for the ads which must be placed along streets, among other considerations, in such a way that they will not jeopardize traffic safety. After the election, the advertisements must be removed within a week.

Further information is provided by City Engineer Henry Westlin (


Vantaa’s actual election communications will begin soon, and we have something far out planned for you, so be sure to tune in to the election frequency!
