In Sweden a referendum concerning prohibition was held on the 27 August 1922. This data collection contains information for all electoral districts in Sweden and includes information on the total number of persons entitled to vote in the referendum, number of persons who actually voted, number of yes- and no-votes respectively and number of invalid ballots. Since the gender of the voter was noted on the ballot it is also possible to get the distribution on men and women respectively. There is also a separate file containing information on postal voting on county level.
