Voting has started today for the German part of the Swiss national selection for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö. The four entries from SF will be chosen by a combination of 50% jury votes and 50% internet votes. The voting is open from today, 15 October, until midnight 29 October.

Votes can be cast by all internet users everywhere, but you will need to register an account with the SF Eurovision platform. You can log in to an account from previous years if you have one already.  Each registered member has in total four votes, that can all go to one song, or be divided between up to four songs. The songs are presented in an alphabetical order on the website. The qualifiers from the internet vote will be revealed in mid-November.

The instructions can be found in several languages on the Eurovision platform of SF here. 

The Italian part of Switzerland will choose their entries in a radio show and the French part will select theirs internally. The Swiss national final Die grosse Entscheidungsshow will be broadcast from Kreuzingen on 15 December 2012, with the Swiss entry being most likely the first one for Malmö 2013 we will hear.
