  • Tenth direct election of the European Parliament, scheduled for June 9, 2024
  • An Estimated 64.9 Million Eligible Voters, Including EU Nationals
  • Gender Breakdown: 33.3 Million Women and 31.7 Million Men to Vote

Wiesbaden, Germany — Germany is poised for a historic turnout in the upcoming tenth direct election of the European Parliament, scheduled for June 9, 2024. A preliminary estimate by the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) indicates that up to 64.9 million people in Germany, including German citizens and other European Union (EU) nationals, are eligible to cast their votes.

This election marks a significant moment in Germany’s participation in European democratic processes. The gender distribution among the eligible voters is fairly balanced, with approximately 33.3 million women and 31.7 million men registered to vote. This broad representation underscores the inclusive nature of the electoral process in the EU’s largest member state.

The participation of non-German EU nationals in the election highlights the EU’s commitment to a transnational democratic process, allowing citizens of member states residing in other EU countries to have a say in the European Parliament’s composition.

As the election approaches, all eyes will be on Germany to see how these record numbers translate into voter turnout and the ultimate composition of the European Parliament.
