The 2010 Stockholm municipal election was held on 19 September 2010, concurrently with the 2010 Swedish general election. The election determined how many seats each party would be allocated on the 101-member Stockholm city council (Stockholms kommunfullmäktige) through a system of proportional representation. A total of 541,716 votes were cast in this election, for a total voter turnout of 81.58%

This election confirmed the trend of the Green Party winning voters in the Swedish capital and other major urban areas in Sweden. The Sweden Democrats - for the first time winning seats in the national parliament - had a significantly lower share of votes in the Stockholm election, receiving only 2.62% of the votes (5.70% on national level).
