Is it worth voting at the European elections?

Yes. 

Of course it is.

It goes without saying….doesn’t it?

Well, no. Apparently not. Lots of people are so unsure of the answer to this question that they type it into google.

Bonkers huh? People are trusting a search engine to decide whether or not to exercise their hard won democratic right.

So, this is for you if you are not sure whether or not it is worth voting at the European elections.

Simply put, yes you should vote. You have a chance to chose who represents you when decisions are made making the laws that govern every aspect of our lives. So, if you care about workers rights, foreign policy, the environment, consumer rights, further and higher education, travel, economics, animal rights, human rights, construction, farming, fishing, forestry, health, entertainment, food…then VOTE!

And more importantly, vote for who you want to win. The party who you think best represents you.

This election is run using a proportional representation system (so you are not ‘wasting your vote’ by voting for a smaller party) and turnout is often very low.

Your vote can make all the difference!
