On Election Day, 22 May 2014, many UK residents were denied the vote for the elections for the European Parliament and were not able to elect who would become their representative at the EU.
At the request of the European Commission (DG Justice), New Europeans has been gathering registration statistics and individual case studies about the nature and extent of the vote denied issue in the UK.
The next step is to obtain a larger body of evidence based on a systematic survey of EU citizens in the UK using a questionnaire.
The results of the survey can prompt a full investigation by the European Commission into the circumstances which led to so many EU citizens being unable to exercise their democratic rights in the UK.
The results of the questionnaire will be used to inform the House of Commons and the European Parliament.
