Introduction to the European Elections
This event will be followed by an Introduction to the European Elections 2019.
With the next European Elections taking place in May 2019, the European Parliament wants to motivate more young people to get involved, get informed and make their voices heard.
The platform “thistimeimvoting.euʺ has been created to build a community of supporters to encourage people to vote in the next election. The goal is not to advocate whom people should vote for: it is to advocate the act of voting itself, the act of engaging in the democratic process; and the act of doing so in a conscious and fully informed way.
