The electoral system of Denmark

Of the 179 members of the Folketing, 175 are elected in Denmark proper, two in the Faroe Islands and two in Greenland. In Denmark, there are ten multi-member constituencies containing a total of 135 seats directly elected by proportional representation, with seats allocated using a modified version of the Sainte-Laguë method and Hare quota. An additional 40 seats are used to address an imbalance in the distribution of the constituency seats and are distributed among all parties that cross the 2% election threshold, according to their national vote share.

Voters can choose between casting a personal vote for a candidate or voting for a political party. The votes given to political parties are distributed among the candidates for that party. This can either be done in proportion to their personal votes or by giving them to candidates in a predetermined order. All parties except the Red-Green Alliance make use of the first option.

According to the Danish Constitution, the 2019 election was required to be held no later than 17 June 2019, as the previous elections were held on 18 June 2015. The Prime Minister is able to call the election at any date, provided that date is no later than four years from the previous election, and this is often cited as a tactical advantage for the sitting government, which can call an early election when polls are favourable.

For a new party to become eligible to participate in the election, they must be supported by a number of voters corresponding to 1/175 of all valid votes cast in the previous election. A new party registering to contest the 2019 elections required 20,109 voter declarations to participate.
