More than 3.8 million voters in Croatia and abroad will today have the opportunity to elect 12 Croatian MEPs to represent them in the European Parliament for the next five years. The race for the Brussels mandates is being fought by 396 candidates with a total of 33 lists, of which two are independent and 31 are party or coalition.
Of the 12 elected candidates, 11 of them will be elected immediately after the voting to the European Parliament, and the twelfth will join them after the withdrawal of the UK from membership in the European Union in Brexit.
Election law on EU elections means that voters the age of 18 can vote in polling stations according to the address of the residence. If they are, on election day, outside their place of residence or abroad, they can vote in another place only if they have submitted a request to the competent state administration body by May 15.
The polling stations across the country will remain open until 7:00pm tonight.
