Was the Sweden election 'fixed'?

The Sweden Democrats (the nationalists) were polling before the election at 19% (the BBC had them at 20%).

Previously, all polls have underestimated their results.

In this election, for the first time ever, the result was under the polled figure at 17%.

(nationalist parties have consistently been underestimated in polls worldwide).

Early in the evening the Sweden Democrats were doing really well at around 24% of the vote, then the government central election results website stopped working and when it came back the Sweden Democrats went into immediate decline.

The other nationalist party the 'Alternative for Sweden' don't appear in the figures at all. Although a new party, they had been doing well in the polls and were widely supported by prominent Swedish nationalist YouTubers.

This is all very strange.

Sweden does not have a secret ballot.

Each party must produce it's own colour-coded ballot papers so to vote for a particular party, you must go that pile of papers and fill it in.

Everyone can see who you voted for.

Many times the administrators have been caught throwing away the papers for parties they disagree with.

All new parties must produce and distribute the ballot papers for their candidates themselves, at their own expense.

Two weeks ago YouTube deleted all the videos of the new 'Alternative for Sweden' party.

I'll say we let more native Swedish people come to the US. I always like Swedish ladies and the Swedish meatballs.
