Swiss Voters Go to Polls

Two of the noted changes in the Swiss Polls for today were against genectically modified crops and extending hours for shopping in major train stations and tourist areas. The major changes are as follows:

  • Voters accepted a five year ban on all genetically modified crops in all 26 cantons by 55.7%.
  • Restrictions for Sunday shopping will be eased at railway stations and airports. The effect really will only be seen in urban regions and was only won by a narrow margin.
