The EU Election results are here: Learn how the votes are distributed

Visualising real-time data for an overview of the distribution of Europe

The last few months have been focused on the European elections, which take place once every 5 years. This year, EU citizens could vote from 6 to 9 June on their party of preference. With their vote, citizens can decide which Members of the European Parliament represent them to adopt laws and shape the future of the EU. Today, the provisional results have been published, which show that the Group of the European People's Party has received the most votes (184 out of 720 seats) in the European Union, followed by Renew Europe with 80 seats. 

With the help of real-time data, a map from the European Parliament visualises the seat distribution of the political groups in 2024. The same data is available for the 2019 elections, so a comparison can be made with the previous election. It is also possible to filter by a specific country and the data will then switch directly to the country-level distribution of the votes. As the elections are now concluded, citizens themselves can use the ‘Majority calculator’ to check which political groups could form a majority in the European Parliament together.

This type of open data can be used to create visualisations like maps or bar charts, to show citizens the direct effect of their votes. If you are interested in knowing more about the data that is used for visualisations, the European Parliament regularly publishes datasets, including documents related to plenary activities or updates on meeting documents. also provides over 140,000 datasets within the ‘government and public sector’, including datasets of the European Parliament, showcasing the election results. Making data publicly available, contributes to the knowledge and understanding of citizens on how their votes are distributed across Europe.
