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”.
Voters Without Borders supports EU Sign Day
Voters Without Borders has joined the EU Sign Day Initiative in order to raise awareness of European Citizens’ Initiatives. EU Sign Day invites EU citizens to sign one, several or all ongoing ECIs on Europe Day (9 May 2021), as the best way to celebrate this special date.
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.
