According to the Eurobarometer survey conducted between the 2-9 of April 2019, 80% of the consulted EU citizens think that what brings European citizens together is more important than what separates them. Regarding the political engagement, eight in ten respondents (81%) say they have discussed politics with family, friends or acquaintances at least once. Over seven in ten respondents (72%) have watched a programme about politics on television. There is a will. However, a third of those surveyed (33%) confessed having doubts when thinking about the EU against a just close 28% who experience hope and a 27% feeling confidence. With a clear rise of the euro-skepticism, extreme right and left national parties, unresolved migration issues, and tensions, and a new economic crisis shyly showing up, Europe the way we know it is today uncertain. And this is clearly affecting peoples’ intentions to vote. 

The elections to the European Parliament will be held in all EU Member States between 23 and 26 May 2019. While voting is compulsory in only five Member States – BE, BG, LU, CY, and EL, European Elections are the one moment when each and every one of us has the opportunity to cast our vote and choose our future in Europe. Europe knows it. And accordingly, lots of new initiatives looking to boost the turnout have been raising since recently powered both by civil society and public institutions. ‘This Time I am Voting‘, ‘#YourVoteOurFuture’ are just examples of some of them. But if what you are really looking for is something that makes you shake and go to the polls, enjoy these three best initiatives designed to convince you!

1. From the second we come into this world we’re in it together

This is the powerful message shout to the world by the European Parliment for their campaign to increase voter engagement in the upcoming European elections. It will surely touch your heart and make you take action for changing the world! Would you resist sharing it?

2. EU&ME

EU&ME is a European Commission’s Publication and Initiative that directly targets young people between 14 and 18 but that will surely make you doubt about your knowledge of the EU. How the European Union was built, the values it shares, who does what, the challenges it faces that will shape the future but above how to take advantage of the European Union today. From training to traveling, surfing the internet to saving the world. Living in the European Union provides endless opportunities to do what you love. This initiative puts together all the EU actions that can give you the tools to pursue your passion around the different areas where direct tools can benefit individuals. From work and living abroad to social rights, running your business, protecting nature, personal data or healthy food among many others, get inspired by first-first hand testimonies of young people that walked the way first!

You Vote EU is a platform co-funded by the European Union to stimulate the participation of EU citizens in the 2019 European Parliament elections and increase the understanding of current and future EU policies. This tool keeps you informed on EU policies and connect you with your current representatives, new candidates or other voters.  You Vote EU allow you to compare your views with those of individual Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) who have elected and find MEPs who best represent your views. It also fosters EU civil society engagement through the possibility of public and open share of your opinions on the EP political and the legislative process, including the profiles of MEPs that are given the opportunity to post their initiatives and to discuss with EU citizens their proposals for changes.

“The most important factor in improving participation is persuading voters that the election (and the political process more generally) is relevant to them and that their vote matters. That is the responsibility of politicians – of all parties, and at all levels of governance – and, arguably, the media.”

Give it a shot!
