How to vote in Switzerland

Do cows have to have horns? Are women allowed to wear a headscarf? And how many vacations are we allowed to have in Switzerland?

Do you know that half of all referendums worldwide take place in Switzerland? Four times a year, we Swiss vote on various bills. No other country in the world votes as much as we do.

If you want to change a law, you only need to collect 50,000 signatures and it will be voted on. For a constitutional amendment you even need 100,000 signatures.
We really do vote on everything: Vacations, minarets, old-age pensions, weapons or energy issues?
