Watch the European elections

For those who haven't read the comment: As the weather is presently as volatile as the electorate's favours, we will gather between 6.00pm and 6.15pm at the Barley Mow,
http://www.barleymowhorseferryr...­
and then move on to Europe House for the show. If you can't make it there or want to come later, just go straight to Europe House.

Please only do RSVP when you have earlier on registered via the link provided by this site:

Results of the European elections 2014 will be coming through from across the EU on the evening of 25th May. There will be a live feed on our website and an event at Europe House in London.

Please join us from 6.30pm as we find out how the people of Britain and across the EU voted.

 . 7.15pm Preliminary projections

At 7.15 we'll have the first reliable pan-European estimations. Based on this we'll have several discussions as we await the actual results at 10pm.

 . 10pm Election Results Revealed

Once the polling stations across the EU have all closed - the last votes can be cast in Italy until 23.00 CET on Sunday 25th May - the results for the whole of the EU will be made public.

Results from those countries (including UK) voting earlier than Sunday 25th will be kept secret until all polling stations have closed in order to ensure that other countries' results do not influence voters.

Register to attend

   . Programme

During the evening we will be examining the results as they come through with informal discussion groups including on the following topics:

Social Media - was it a Social Media Election?

Big claims were made about the role of social media ahead of these elections and candidates flocked to open Twitter and Facebook accounts. We look at whether social media really have swayed turnout and results.

UK Media reporting

How have the UK media handled the elections? Were Brits offered a balanced picture? Are we happy with the way press and broadcasters covered this poll and Europe generally?

  Calling Berlin, Rome and Paris offices of the European Parliament

We pick up the phone to colleagues in the European Parliament Information Offices in the three other biggest EU member states. What are their impressions? What changes have they seen? What do they think of our results? What do we think of theirs?

  The Rise of Eurosceptic parties - did it happen?
We examine how far the pre-election predictions of a rise in populist and anti-EU parties has been reflected in European ballot boxes. What does this mean for the UK and for the EU?

The prior Meetup point will be announced closer to the elections, also depending upon the weather :-). Looking forward to a good outcome for the elections and a great night of discussions.

    Thanks Andrea for spotting this event. It was a great opportunity to share ideas, exchange opinions and not least, cross check numbers.
    Thanks all for the good company!

    I love watching elections in good company. Andrea this was a good find despite the anti European election results. 34% of the great British public have expressed their will, I hope the rest will now realize why voting is important. It was great to see many of our members at Europe House and to have well informed and intelligent conversations.

    A nice bunch of LEC members , some inspiring conversations, and the nicest free (and unexpected) meal in a while. LEC cannot be blamed for the shortcomings of the event itself, including very late start, lack of air conditioning, poor voice amplification and lacklustre content. Europe House needs to raise its game!

    Hello, followed the link to register on Europarl site, but unfortunately it's already fully booked. Is there another way?
    Thanks!

    May 23

    • Andrea

      You might check their website for a contact mail address or telephone number and then get in touch to ask if some ppl have cancelled their registration. Another member told me there were a waitlist but I don't know what the exact procedures are.

      May 23

    • Ingrida S.

      Thanks Andrea, I've contacted them already and they added me to their guest list. It seemed pretty easy, so if anyone still wants to get in I suggest they'd try contacting them by email by following the europal link.

      May 23

  • Andrea

    Just a little nudge, I hope all of you who join on Sunday are also going to vote or have already done so :-)

    May 23

    and then move on to Europe House for the show. Please be there at the latest at 6.15. I, the tall person with short reddish hair usually dressed in black, will have a paper with European Club written on it.

    I cannot get in either to the venue. To the person who said they have not received their voting papers, I got mine two weeks ago and they have been returned. Seriously, if you have not received, you really must chase this very quickly. Good luck. Xxxx

  • Andrea

    I have just checked the link and it seems the event is now fully booked at Europe House, so I hope all of you are meanwhile registered and have received your confirmation from Europe House. If you haven't, please do remove yourself from the Meetup RSVP list.

    Hello everybody, Im new in this group, and new in London. Im going to register and would like to join you next sunday. Other people going there alone? Greetings.

    May 18

    • Krissy

      I did it this morning !

      May 18

    • Andrea

      Great, looking forward to seeing you on Sunday. That means Europe House meanwhile does accept further registrations? If so, I will then also forward this news to my friend who contacted me yesterday with the contrary message...

      May 18

  • Andrea

    I had a chat with a friend who tried to register at Europe House yesterday and presently it looks as if this event is fully booked. So if you haven't registered yet it might be a good idea to call Europe House and check with them if they expect some drop outs and what procedures they have in place.
