    Poles Head to the Polls for European Parliament Elections

    At 7 a.m. on Sunday, polling stations across Poland commenced voting for the European Parliament elections. This significant electoral event will determine the selection of 53 Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) from an extensive list of 1,019 candidates. Voting will continue until 9 p.m., during which a mandated election silence ensures a fair and undisturbed process.

    Voters are required to present valid identification at the polling stations. This document is essential for election officials to verify the voter’s presence on the electoral register and grant them access to vote. Additionally, voters who possess a certificate of voting rights will be added to the register upon presenting their certificate.

    This year’s election is noteworthy not only because it involves the election of 53 MEPs—one more than the previous term—but also due to the diversity of the candidates. Of the 1,019 candidates, 53 percent are men and 47 percent are women.
