All you need to know about the 2024 European elections

The 2024 European elections will take place on 6-9 June across the European Union’s 27 Member States, to elect the next 720 Members of the European Parliament.

Over 400 million citizens are eligible to vote for their representatives in the European Parliament in the tenth direct election, the first being held in 1979.

The outcome of the election will also directly influence the composition of the next mandate of the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union, as well as the nomination of the next European Council President.

As an EU citizen, you can vote in your country of origin or residence: you must be registered to vote and the minimum voting age is set by each EU country.

This age is set at 16 in Austria, Belgium, Germany and Malta, 17 in Greece, and 18 in the remaining EU Member States.

The elections will take place on the following dates:

  • 6 June: Netherlands
  • 7 June: Czech Republic, Ireland
  • 8 June: Czech Republic, Italy, Latvia, Malta, Slovakia
  • 9 June: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden

In the last European elections held in May 2019, just over 50.66% of eligible voters casted their ballots, an increase of over 8% compared to the previous elections in 2014.

Liberals cemented their spot as kingmakers in the European Parliament obtaining 108 seats, as the ALDE Group grew into Renew Europe.
