Enhancing participation of EU citizens in European Parliament and local elections.

Despite their growing numbers, inclusion of EU movers in the political life of their countries of residence is limited. This is especially evident during local and EU elections, but participation of non-national EU citizens in the activities of political parties, NGOs and trade unions is quite low as well.

‘Operation vote’ is a project which addresses the issue of insufficient political and social participation of EU citizens residing in member States of which they are not nationals. Its added value is to complement the initiatives undertaken by Member States and local authorities aimed at raising awareness among EU movers about their electoral rights and to increase their political participation through close cooperation between NGOs working with EU migrants and their organizations.
