Switzerland Referendums Election 2019 Voting Live Date: 19 May 2019 

Several federal votes will be held in Switzerland during 2019. Voting took place on 10 February, and two referendums are scheduled for 19 May. Federal elections will take place on 20 October, which led the Swiss Federal Council to postpone the November round of voting until 2020.

 


About Switzerland Referendums

Voters will vote on two popular initiatives:

  • The first is an initiative to change corporate tax law and reform the old age pension system. Among other changes, the law would change the tax rate on shareholder dividends and the limits on tax break on profits from patents and deductions for investment in research and development. A separate law on corporate taxes and the old age pension system was rejected in 2017.
  • The second is an initiative to challenge gun law reform passed in 2018. This reform was passed to bring Swiss gun regulations in line with changes to EU regulations and included changes to how automatic and semi-automatic guns are legally purchased. The initiative would reject the law passed in 2018.
