The European Parliament elections will take place across the EU between 23-26 May 2019. In Ireland, we will vote on Friday, 24 May 2019.
The European Parliament is the only directly elected EU Institution, and what is decided in the Parliament over the next five years will have a direct impact on our lives.
In May 2019, EU citizens will elect 705 members (MEPs) in total to represent them at the European Parliament until 2024, with 13 MEPs coming from Ireland.
Voting in the European Parliament elections gives you a say over the future direction of the EU, and a chance to shape the kind of Europe we live in.
