On the 17th of November there is local elections in Denmark
I 98 municipals and 5 regions (all of the country) the local politicians for the next 4 years will be elected.

Currently it looks like, SF and DF will be the big winners while Venstre and the Social Liberals will lose.

Some polls (not that they are usefull in any way. Local elections are decided by local things)

Jyllandsposten 12th of October ( () is last election in 2005)
A: Socialdemokraterne: 34,6 procent (34,3)
B: Det Radikale Venstre: 2,7 procent (5,2)
C: Konservative Folkeparti: 9,9 procent (10,3)
F: Socialistisk Folkeparti: 14,3 procent (7,4)
O: Dansk Folkeparti: 8,6 procent (5,9)
V: Venstre: 22,5 procent (27,5)
: Enhedslisten: 1,6 procent (2,7)
Others: 5,9 procent (6,9)

DR 12th of October ( () is last election in 2005)
A: Socialdemokraterne: 28 procent (34,3)
B: Det Radikale Venstre: 4 procent (5,2)
C: Konservative Folkeparti: 11 procent (10,3)

A bit more about the elections (just for my own fun)
The goal for the Social Democrats are to "win" the post of mayor in the 4 largest cities, Copenhagen, Aarhus, Odense and Aalborg. Not that difficult since they already hold it in Cph, Aarhus and Aalborg.

Odense:
The Conservative mayor in Odense, Jan Boye is being challenged by the previous mayor Anker Boye (and no they are not related) and it looks like Anker will become mayor thanks to SF's expected gains.

Copenhagen:
Cph was looking like it was going to be the battle because of a fairly unpopular Lord Mayor, the grand old Social Democratic Woman, Ritt Bjerregaard, former EU Commissioner, minister and MP - who completely failed to understand that local governance is about working together not making enemies everywhere - and the fact that SF is extremely popular in the capital. Bjerregaard withdrew after polls showing that the Social Democrats was smaller that SF (20% to 30%). It actually looked like SD was going to loose control of Copenhagen for the first time since the implementation of proportional democracy. But no, SD managed to convince Frank Jensen, runner up for the 2005 SD chairman election and former minister of justice to run. The SD bounced back in the polls (35 % to SF's 25 %) and the 3 left wing parties in the capital made a deal that makes Jensen the next Lord Mayor.

Aarhus:
Is boring. Nicolai Wammen will cruse to victory supported by SF

Aalborg:
Is also boring. The only fun thing is if the mayor Henning Jensen actually is forced to work with SF

Esbjerg:
SD probably won't gain Esbjerg, the 5. largest city. The Venstre mayor is quite popular and the SD bench is weak and fractured.

I remember something about Copenhagen being left controlled since the first decade of the twentieth century or something and about there being a small area inside the city that isn't in the city and which is right controlled since ever.

Not bad. Copenhagen has been controlled by SD since 1902 or 03 - The Conservative enclave is Frederiksberg, completely surrounded by Cph and Conservative for 100+ years, basically since urbanisation. Frederiksberg isn't that small. The municipal holds more that 100.000 inhabitants.

The new mayors

A lot of changes. Venstre was killed on Funen and the Social Democrats lost the Triangle (Fredericia, Vejle, Kolding-area) Those cities has been ruled by the Social Democrats for 80+ years. Conservatives fared much better than expected and SF won two mayorships outside Copenhagen, pretty good.
In terms of votes, the big winners where SF and Danish People's Party. Both parties doubled and had their best local elections ever. SF even won more votes than last national election.

Currently going through the results and doing a map of leading party (mostly as a badly disguised excuse to learn more about local politics in Denmark, lol)... and... well... what sort of place is Lolland?

Errors certain, but I had fun anyway - I love how the obviously different political cultures of different places seem to show up so well. Key is for future reference, or something. Btw, if I ever do party vote maps for an election in Denmark I won't use purple for SF - just using it to distinguish easily from the Social Democrats.

I may conceivably reconsider.

Yes, I thought that name wonderful as well... but what I was getting at; SD first, SF second in what is presumably a fairly rural area. It doesn't seem to be a personal vote issue or anything as the same was true of the regional elections there...

I just noticed that I actually thought of Langeland when I read "Lolland".

And looking for the real name of the island, I found this great list on the German wiki. Seems a lot of smaller Danish islands have been bleeding population.
