Yes, you can, but you have to register to vote by 17.00 CET on 28 February 2019, at the very latest, at your commune or via myguichet.lu.
Under EU law, all countries must use voting systems that ensure proportional representation, which means that the number of elected members from each party depends on the share of electoral votes obtained by the party.
Luxembourg uses preferential voting, which gives the voters the option to indicate their preferences within the party list they choose. Candidates who receive the most preferences are more likely to be elected.
Candidates have to fulfil certain requirements that can be found on https://guichet.public.lu/en/citoyens/citoyennete/elections/elections-europeennes/candidat-election-europeennes.html
