Open source guide 2021

Understand your rights and feel empowered to vote as an EU citizen voter during the postponed 2021 election cycle.

Together with a coalition of partners working on get out the vote campaigns this election cycle, we have created the first tailor made open source election guide.

What is an open source document?

As an open source document anybody is free to use, study, suggest modifications and distribute the election guide for any purpose.

We chose the open source approach to bring all partners working in the field close together and lower the barriers to speedy collaboration.


Each slide acts as a stand alone infographic explaining a different aspect of the election cycle and your rights as an EU voter.

Slides are specifically designed for sharing on Facebook and Instagram.

Please note: the contribution window has now closed, but you are still able to view and share the guide.
