Operation Vote


The overall objective of the project is to improve and stimulate through campaigning the participation of EU citizens in the political and public life of the countries where they reside and of which they are not nationals. Specific objectives are to understand better whether and to what extent EU movers are involved in the political life of their countries of residence, to raise awareness among them of their electoral rights in EP elections and local elections, to increase their participation in the political life, to promote interaction and cooperation between EU citizens’ organizations, NGOs and local authorities in order to maximise the impact of the actions undertaken.
