With the upcoming European elections, the European Commission is aiming to reach out to citizens who will be voting for the very first time, and raise awareness about the elections. To that end, the European Commission is inviting first time voters to join this social media competition and explain why they are voting with a short description and a picture.

Who can participate
Anyone who is eligible to vote in the EU elections and who is voting for the first time.


How to participate
