Luxembourg - Electoral Law
(Election to the European Parliament : 13 June 2004)

1. LEGAL BASIS
Electoral law of 18 February 2003, supplemented by the law of 10 February 2004 concerning the election of Members of the European Parliament in the new Member States.
2. ELECTORAL SYSTEM
Proportional representation on a national basis (the whole country forming a single constituency).
Allocation of seats: d'Hondt method. Each voter has the same number of votes as there are seats (six). Panachage (cross-party voting) is permitted. A voter may vote en bloc for an entire list, vote for candidates from more than one list, or choose individual candidates from a particular list. Where a voter votes for an entire list consisting of fewer than six candidates, this list is credited with as many votes as it has candidates. No list may include more than twelve names. Seats are allocated on the basis of the number of votes obtained by the different candidates and lists.
3. REGISTRATION OF CANDIDATES
Deadline for registration: 60 days before polling day.
Deposit: None.

Conditions: lists must be submitted by either 250 voters, or a Member of the European Parliament or a national MP.

Incompatibilities: Those laid down in the 1976 Act on Elections to the European Parliament.
4. POLLING DAY : 13 JUNE 2004
Other elections on the same day: National legislative elections.
Polling hours: from 08.00 to 14.00
The count begins: at 14.00 on Sunday together with the count for the national legislative elections. The first projections will be published from 22.00, calculated on the basis of 80% of the votes already counted.
