Rushing to vote?

Danes love their democracy. In international studies, Denmark usually ends up in the top three of countries where people are most satisfied with their system of governance. The average voting turnout is usually between 83 and 89 percent, which is among the highest in the world.

Around 170,000 people (4.5 per cent of voters) are members of a political party, also a high number compared to other countries.

Are these people rushing to go voting? Not really, I took the photograph during rush hour!
