Less than 100 days until we get out the vote, in May! Meanwhile, catch up with our daily articles from last week…
Let's get out the vote!
WHAT MOTIVATES US?
In EU elections, voter turnout has consistently gone done from 56.67% in 1994 to only 42.61% in 2014, with the lowest participation rates in the newer member states of Central and Eastern Europe.
Only 35% of 25-39 and 28% of 18-24 year olds took part in the 2014 elections.
Radical and extreme political movements rely on low participation to succeed.
Given the stakes, the challenges to the fundamental values that the European Union was built upon and the internal and external threats to our democracies, we believe this may be the most important election in a generation.
