European Parliament 2019 

Volunteers motivated more citizens than ever to vote in the 2019 European elections; turnout increased by more than 8 percentage points.  

On 23-26 May, over 200 million Europeans in 28 EU member states voted in the European elections, resulting in turnout increasing from 42,61% in 2014 to 51% in 2019. The record number of people voted to boost European democracy and give a strong mandate to incoming MEPs to weigh in on the future of the EU.

The current online press tool kit offers media quick access to the detailed outcome of the European elections and helps them to understand the process of composition of the new Parliament and the new Commission.

It further includes useful contacts, an overview of European Parliament´s recent legislative work and achievements, an election app, links to background notes, graphics and public opinion data, all designed to help journalists quickly find relevant, up-to-date information.
