Voting rights of people deprived of legal capacity

On 26 February in Brussels, the agency will take part in the event #ThisTimeWeAreVoting.

Discussions will focus on what is needed to ensure that people with disabilities can vote on an equal basis with others.

At the event, FRA will launch its paper Who will (not) get to vote in the 2019 European Parliament elections? The paper updates previous FRA research on the situation of the right to vote of people deprived of legal capacity. It highlights legal reforms in the area since 2014 and identifies some of the drivers of these changes.

The event is being hosted by Vice President of the European Parliament Sylvie Guillaume and is being organised by Inclusion Europe.
