Elections for the European Parliament were scheduled to be held on 23-26 May 2019. Voters from across the European Union are called to elect 705 Members of the European Parliament (MEPs).
This ESO feature is subject to continuous development.
This election is affected by amendments to the Electoral Act, which include new provisions on 'double voting', voting in third countries, different voting methods, and the visibility of European political parties in the Member States. Voters are called to elect a lower number of MEPs, following a Decision on the composition of the European Parliament which followed the United Kingdom's decision to leave the European Union.
