Vote in the European Parliament Elections! In Vaasa, you can cast your vote at 11 advance polling stations

The main election day for the European Parliament elections is Sunday, 9 June 2024. You can also vote in advance in Finland from 29 May to 4 June 2024. Advance voting abroad will take place from 29 May to 1 June 2024.

The European Parliament is one of the legislative bodies of the European Union. EU citizens elect its members through direct elections held every five years in all member states. The elections select members to the European Parliament from all EU member states.

The number of Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) elected from each EU member state is proportional to the population of the country. In 2024, 720 MEPs will be elected, including 15 from Finland.

In Finland, every person who has turned 18 by the actual election day is eligible to vote. Eligible voters can vote either in advance or on the election day according to their preference.
