This time I’m voting! European Elections: 23-26 May 2019

The next European elections are coming up in May 2019 and RNE would like to contribute to spreading the message and help encourage EU citizens make use of their vote on this occasion.

As a European association in the railway sector, RNE depends on a well-functioning democratic system. Successful cooperation at European level is a key factor in improving rail transport, which impacts so many people, as

  • 4 in 5 Europeans take the train;
  • The European rail sector directly employs more than 1 million persons. And one job in railway transport creates more than one job in indirectly dependent economic activities.

Democracy is often taken for granted in today’s society, and it seems that many citizens do not fully recognise the integral role they play as individuals and that democracy at its core can only work if citizens participate. We would like to encourage the European citizens to use the upcoming elections (23-26 May 2019) to engage in the democratic process and go out and vote.
