New Eurobarometer - electoral rights

European citizenship does not replace citizenship of a Member State. Instead it supplements these rights and responsibilities, and includes electoral rights.

This survey investigates the knowledge of EU citizens on their voting rights - in particular the right to vote for and to stand as a candidate for European and municipal elections in the state in which the person resides. Opinions are also expressed about voting rights for non-national EU citizens residing in other EU countries and ways to increase voter participation in European Parliament elections.
