  2. In which member states is it particularly low?
  3. What is the average voter turnout in all member states?
  4. Is the voter turnout in your state higher or lower than the average turnout?
  5. Compared to the previous European Elections, has the voter turnout increased or decreased?
Note down your results including reasons (main points)
