Election-related TV-programmes on Finnish parliamentary elections have been broadcast since 1960´s, but there´s never been a full-time live coverage. The first groundbreaking election-night broadcast was in the year 1966.

You find more information on the subject in the Yle Archives Elävä arkisto.

Members of Parliament are elected every fourth year. Election Day is the third Sunday of April. Every Finnish citizen who has reached the age of 18 not later than on the day of the election is entitled to vote in parliamentary elections.

On Finnish Parliamentary election day voting places are open from 9am to 8pm and there has never been live 11 h TV broadcast from start to beginning (it would be very boring), but there is a live vote prediction and preliminary results program on TV on every election day. It usually starts around 7.30pm and continues until all votes have been counted, maybe midnight or so. This tradition had been on TV at least 20-30 years.
