VoteWatch Europe is a small, independent not-for-profit organisation. Our goal is to promote better debates and greater transparency in EU politics by making information on the decision-making process of the European Parliament and the Council of Ministers available in a user-friendly, searchable format.
We rely on grants and donations to maintain and improve our core activities. You can help us by making a donation, however small. Donations are not tax-deductible.
We accept donations via PayPal/credit card (click below). To pay by bank transfer, please email us for details.
If you are interested in supporting VoteWatch Europe on a structural basis, please contact Michiel van Hulten, managing director. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rank MEPs and parties according to your own policy preferences !
VoteMatch allows you to vote on the same European laws as Members of the European Parliament (MEPs).
Once you have cast your votes, we show you which MEPs, political groups and national political parties currently represented in the EP most closely match your views.
Start voting (if you don't have a MyVoteWatch account yet) OR
if you have an account already (you have to be signed in to access the statistics).
Cast your votes on a set of key issues
The VoteWatch team has selected a set of key issues on which MEPs have voted since 2009. They are all votes which have led to substantial debate both inside and outside the Parliament.
This list of votes will be updated on a regular basis. If you would like us to consider a specific vote for inclusion in the test, please let us know at email@example.com. This is not a scientific test but a fun tool designed to help users understand how the EP works.
The decision on whether to include issues is inevitably subjective and is ours alone.
