Another project of Unlock Democracy

Confused about the European Elections? Vote Match Europe is coming end of April.

Vote Match has four aims:

  • To be fun
  • To inform about policy differences between parties
  • To encourage people to vote and so boost turnout
  • To promote debate

How to match your vote

The statements - answer the statements by clicking on agree, disagree, open-minded or skip (if you want to ignore the statement entirely).

Your priorities - you can choose which statements you think are most and least important. The statements you choose as most important will count double towards your results, and the least important will count half as much.

The parties - select which parties you would be prepared to vote for (at least three).

Results - the results screen will reveal which party you agree with most, and other parties will follow in descending order. You can look at the responses from each party in more detail by clicking on their name.

Vote Match is intended as a guide only and is not intended to give you definitive answers on which way you should vote. We encourage you to look into the parties' policies in more detail.

Vote Match is based on StemWijzer, developed by the Institute for Political Participation in the Netherlands, and can be used for a variety of elections.

If you or your organisation would like to commission a version of Vote Match for a specific election, or sponsor a Vote Match, please do not hesitate to contact us.
