EPvotetracker from a European perspective

How do MEPs vote?

In the shift of power between the EU institutions in Brussels, the European Parliament is considered the winner of recent years. Not least, the 2019 European elections and the associated innovations regarding the selection of the Commission President illustrated this development (keyword: Spitzenkandidat*innen Prozess).

In addition to a strong parliament, however, the democratic deficit must also be remedied through comprehensible and accountable decision-making. We create a key to the power arithmetic of the European Parliament for you after each plenary session.

We have prepared the data for you. Via EPvotetracker we provide you with the voting results of the MEPs. You can use EPvotetracker to filter the so-called "Roll Call Votes" by individual MEPs or political groups, but also by national states. Select any votes and let the app generate individual analyses for each vote.

In addition, we use EPvotetracker data to create overviews of the voting behavior of German MEPs. For better analysis, we have grouped the German states together.

If you want to analyze the voting results yourself, follow EPvotetracker. Otherwise, you can switch to the "Vote Overviews" page to find the latest overviews we have provided for you.

EPvotetracker is a free service of the University of Duisburg Essen and a project of the Jean Monnet Chair for European Integration and European Politics.
