NOVA joins the call to vote in the European elections: EU launched campaign to raise awareness, especially among young people, of the importance of voting in the next election

At the heart of this campaign is the video "Use your vote", in which, in four minutes, the arguments of a series of European citizens who have witnessed the transformative power of democracy in their lives are presented.  

Together, their testimonies tell a story of how voting is an important right and has not always been guaranteed and encourages us to use our vote if we don't want others to decide for us.  

“Democracy in the European Union is more important than ever. It is our vote that decides the direction of Europe over the next five years. It will decide which Europe we want to live in", highlighted the President of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola, at the launch of the campaign. “Don’t let others choose for you. Between June 6th and 9th, 2024, vote. "Every vote counts,” she added. 

Watch the video and consult all the information on the European Elections website, which will take place between 6 and 9 June 2024, in which almost 400 million people in the 27 Member States are called to vote.
