Between 23-26 May 2019, Europeans will elect a new EU Parliament. Their vote will help decide the future direction of Europe over the next five years. It’s an important vote. Will we see a populist wave of euroscepticism overtake the European Union? Will new political movements take shape? When the smoke has cleared, will there be a mandate for change?
Voter turnout in European elections is traditionally low. For many, the EU is too distant and complex. Nevertheless, the decisions made in Brussels by our MEPs and governments affect all of us. From the tackling unemployment and reforming the Single Currency, to responding to the migrant and refugee crisis, to tackling the impending climate crisis, the EU plays an important role. Surely, among all the issues that Europe deals with, there are some that concern you personally?
If you vote, you can make a difference. Because of this, the European Union has launched a campaign for the 2019 European elections “This Time I’m Voting“.
Will you vote in the European Parliament elections? Take part in our poll below and let us know if you’ll be turning out! And, as always, let us know your thoughts and comments in the form below and we’ll take them to policymakers and experts for their reactions!
