(SOUNDBITE) (Dutch) ART STUDENT FROM AMSTERDAM, JUKE SAMWEL, 21, SAYING:"I went through the candidates to try and find a woman to vote for. I ended up picking number 33, D66 candidate Joan Nunnely. I found this woman of color very inspiring. So that's who I went for. Very nice to tune in here in the sunshine and with music. New experience, it is very nice like this."
