This article will give an overview of the Greenlandic parliamentarian elections from the advent of home rule to today's self-government. The point of departure will be to look at the party mobilization throughout the years and the electoral results with voter turnout and candidate nominations. The article will be placed within the framework of theories regarding voter behaviour and electoral systems. Questions to be answered are e.g.: Can we draw a trend of change of party positions throughout the years? Have the parties changed their ideology throughout time? Is there a specific pattern in Greenlandic politics regarding mobilization in politics in comparison to other sub-national jurisdictions? What can be said about voter behaviour amongst the people?
