Who here will be voting in the European elections?
If so, why?
If not, why not?
And for whom? (Explain whereabouts the party lay on the spectrum, i.e/ Liberal, conservative etc...)

I'm going to vote,
always vote when I get the chance, got to participate in the democratic process!
Don't know yet what i'm going to vote, usually in elections I use a few online vote suggestion sites to roughly find out which parties are the best fit for my stances on the issues, and then look through their party programs for the details to find the best fit.

I always vote. I only found out recently there were elections this year and haven't made my choice yet, although if I'd have to go tomorrow it would either be for the Greens or the Democrats (center right), or the Socialists (center left) if they have someone outstanding.

SPD in Germany.
One issue would be the Single European Market for services where I don't think that companies from country A should be able to compete with those in country B within the framework of social standards and regulations of country A.
I genereally think that the financial markets need more regulation.
On the important topic of 3 strike laws I unfortunately don't feel sure with any party.

I have to vote. I live in one of those few European countries in which there is compulsory voting. But I don't mind. It makes people think about what is going on in the world and in Europe especially.
I think I'll vote center left (socialists), but since politics are so screwed up here, I don't know yet for sure.
