Election day

The elections to the European Parliament (EP) will be held in all EU Member States (MS) between 22 and 25 May 2014. Following Parliament’s initiative, the electoral period was brought forward from June, in particular to provide additional time for the newly elected Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) to prepare for the election of the new Commission President. The precise day of elections is set by MS; in some cases this has yet to be done formally for 2014. The official election results can be published only after the poll closes in the MS whose electors are the last to vote on Sunday 25 May 2014. Voting is compulsory in only four MS – BE, LU, CY and GR, where the legal obligation to vote applies to nationals and registered non-national EU citizens.
