The European elections concern us all. The ninth elections will be taking place between 23 and 26 May 2019, when 350 million EU citizens will again have 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 to raise awareness about why the elections matter and to further encourage EU citizens to vote.
CoR members represent not only their cities and regions in Brussels, but also the European Union back in their home countries – they are EU ambassadors. For them and for every citizen, we have put together a handful of official sources that may be useful in promoting the elections.
The information on this page will be updated and users are invited to send suggestions for additional sources.
