Today, the Ministry of Justice, the Prime Minister's Office and the National Emergency Supply Agency are launching a joint communications campaign with the theme: Elections in Finland are reliable – Cast your vote.

In the run-up to the municipal elections, the campaign encourages to use the democratic right to vote. It also encourages to discuss, participate and give ground for others’ opinions. The aim of the campaign is to prevent any possible disinformation related to the elections by reminding people of the importance of media literacy and by directing them to the reliable sources of information provided by the authorities. In addition, the campaign reminds people of health security at the polling stations. The campaign planning started in January.

Journalist Pirjo Nuotio,  philanthropist Heikki Hursti from the charity organisation Laupeudentyö, actor Sara Parikka and head coach of the  Finnish national basketball team Henrik Dettman have lent their faces to the campaign. The communications campaign will appear on television and radio, in printed media and online. 

The campaign material is in Finnish and Swedish, and key parts are also in English and in the most common foreign languages spoken in Finland. 

The 2021 municipal elections will be held on Sunday 13 June. The advance voting period in Finland is from 26 May to 8 June.
