Älvkarleby Municipality (Älvkarleby kommun) is a municipality in Uppsala County in east central Sweden. Its seat is located in the town of Skutskär.

Localities[edit]

History[edit]

Not until late in the Bronze Age (10th century BC) did parts of what is now Älvkarleby begin to rise out of the Baltic Sea. Remains of settlements from that period has been found in the area. In the Early Iron Age (6th-12th century) the population began to grow and people supported themselves on farming, hunting, fishing and livestock. The first mention of Älvkarleby is found in documents from the early Middle Ages (13th century).

Älvkarleby was the hometown of the author Stig Dagerman.

Elections[edit]

These are the election results since the 1972 municipal reform. The results of Sweden Democrats were not published by the SCB between 1988 and 1998 due to the party's small size nationally so has been denoted as "0.0". Älvkarleby has traditionally seen outright majorities for the Social Democrats, although in 2010 and 2014 the party fell just short of 50 % of ballots cast in the municipality.

Blocs
