Today, Swiss voters voted on whether to ban face covering, whether to accept a government plan for issuing electronic IDs and whether to accept a trade deal with Indonesia that some argue does too little to protect tropical forests.
Only in the cantons of Graubunden, a canton with a large tourism sector, Appenzell Ausserrhoden, Bern, and the urban cantons of Basel-City, Geneva, Zurich did a majority of voters reject the ban on face covering. Majorities in all other cantons voted in favour of the ban.
The vote on the government plan on digital IDs was roundly rejected by 64.4% of the Swiss electorate. One of the main criticisms of the plan was how it involved the private sector.
