Countdown to EU Elections 2014 - Debating Europe Vote 2014
With unemployment at record levels, rising extremism and popular discontent, Europe needs to hear its citizens’ voices!
Debating Europe Vote 2014 is the first ever pan-European online e-Vote, launched one year before the European Parliament elections in May 2014. The online project will host a series of online debates, live chats, and physical events, designed to enable Europe’s citizens to question MEPs (and prospective MEPs) on the issues facing Europe, and help make up their mind about who to vote for in the European elections.
The results will be presented directly to the European Parliament each month.
