Sign our European Citizens' Initiative (ECI) today!
Welcome to Voters Without Borders which puts young people centre stage: a team of Erasmus students, supported by a wider coalition, campaigning for full political rights for EU citizens who practise their rights to freedom of movement. 13.3 million EU citizens are under-represented with the right to vote and stand in European and local elections, but not in regional and national elections or referenda. Check out our proposal, our FAQ and our Advocacy Paper to find out more. Please consider getting involved with our project either as an individual or as an organisation. But most importantly — please sign our European Citizens’ Initiative today! Don’t be fooled — there is still disenfranchisement. Become part of the European struggle for “no taxation without representation”.

HAVE YOU LOST YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE AFTER EXERCISING YOUR RIGHT TO FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT? FILL OUT OUR QUESTIONNAIRE TO TELL US MORE!
Considering that no one should be denied their right to vote, Voters Without Borders decided to file a complaint to the European Commission against those five Member States (Cyprus, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, and Malta) which deprive their nationals of the right to vote in national elections on account of residence abroad (known as disenfranchisement). A key and crucial part of our complaint is your testimony, as it will give weight to the complaint and prompt the Commission to take action.
If you sign our European Citizens' Initiative and help us collect one million signatures, the European Commission must act on the following proposals:
Remove barriers to registration of EU citizens to vote and stand in European and local elections either in their country of residence or origin.
REAFFIRM UNIVERSAL SUFFRAGE
Reaffirm Universal Suffrage as a fundamental right and value. EU citizens should have the right to choose whether to vote in their country of residence or origin for all elections and referenda.
RESEARCH THE IMPACT
Research the impact of such genuine Europeanization of voting rights, the necessary safeguards, and how they could include third-country nationals.
