Use Your Vote: European Elections on 6-9 June 2024

Voting at the European elections is your opportunity to decide what the European Union should focus on over the next five years.

In the European Union, democracy may seem obvious to us today. But this has not always been the case.Not so long ago, millions of Europeans lived through times when they could not vote or even speak up freely. When their very lives could be in danger simply for being different, for holding different beliefs or for wanting a different life.

Democracy is a precious gift passed on to us from previous generations. They aspired towards it and fought for it. Now it is up to us to maintain it, to make it stronger and pass it on to the generations to come. The most effective way to do so is by voting – because the more people vote, the stronger democracy becomes.

On June 6-9 2024: Use your vote or others will decide for you.
