'This time I'm voting' Campaign
 
The European Parliament wants to build a "community of supporters" for the cause of voting at the European elections. Their campaign consists not only in getting people to vote, but also to get them engaged in convincing others about the importance of voting as well. Their message is that it's not enough to just hope for a better future, that this time we all need to take responsibility for it.
