WHY YOU SHOULD VOTE

As with all elections, voting in the European elections is about choosing your future

The European Parliament makes big decisions: how to grow the economy, how to curb energy use, how to make sure that the food we eat is safe. When you vote, you choose who makes these decisions and what they mean for the sort of world you want to live in. If you don’t vote, you have no say.

The world faces many challenges, from migration to climate change. But when problems are shared, solutions are more easily found. Our Union is leading the way in innovation and investment that, for example, we need to tackle climate change. And it is working to protect our way of life and our privacy. Your vote gives it the strength it needs to do that.

All around us, we see how unchallenged “truths” can turn diversity into division. And how fragile democracy can be. Our Union is based on a shared respect for fundamental rights and democratic principles. Your vote is your claim on those rights, for yourself and for others.
