VoteWatch Europe becomes official co-operation partner of the Rock the Union tour
We are happy to announce that VoteWatch Europe is now official co-operation partner of the "Rock the Union" tour project. VoteWatch Europe provides MyVote2014.eu for the tour.
What is MyVote2014.eu?
On 22-‐25 May 2014 Europe's voters will go to the polls to elect a new European Parliament.
This will be followed by the nomination and confirmation of a new European Commission.
MyVote2014.eu is a project co-financed by the European Parliament, aimed at preparing young and firsttime voters for participation in the elections by informing them about key decisions taken by the European Parliament in the current legislature and showing what is at stake in key policy areas.
How will MyVote2014.eu work?
VoteWatch Europe is developing a dedicated, innovative website and associated online tools (apps, widgets) that will allow young voters to gain a better understanding of the role and functioning of the European Parliament and the policy choices made by MEPs on a set of 15 key issues of interest to young
The website will be available in English, French, German, Italian, Polish and Spanish, and will be launched
in Brussels in mid-‐September 2013.
Users can take a survey of their political preferences in which they vote on the selected issues. On the basis
of the choices they make the website will tell users which MEPs, national parties and EP political groups
match their preferences most closely.
The test will be embedded in the League of Young Voters’ website, and will also be available through a
In addition, the website will also include interactive games testing users’ knowledge on the European Parliament.
This is just the beginning! We intend to keep the project running until the European elections of 2014. As we
approach election week VoteWatch Europe will publish information about new candidates as well as existing MEPs, electoral campaigns, and electoral systems in EU member states, broadening our audience to all age groups.
