European elections 2019  

The European elections concern us all. The ninth European elections take place between 23 and 26 May 2019. 350 million EU citizens will have then again their chance to elect the 705 members of the European Parliament (EP).

The European Committee of the Regions (CoR) and its locally and regionally elected representatives are working together with the European Parliament in an effort to raise awareness about what is at stake and further engage EU citizens to vote in the elections.

CoR members represent not only their cities and regions in Brussels, but also the European Union back in their countries – they are EU ambassadors. For them and every citizen, we gathered a handful of official sources, which may be useful for communicating on the European elections.

Information on this page will be updated and users are invited to send suggestions for additional sources.
