The voter abstention “bomb”, over time, across Europe

Χάρτης με την αποχή από τις τελευταίες βουλευτικές εκλογές σε κάθε χώρα της ΕΕ.

A cross-border data journalism feature, led by Divergente with the assistance of twelve other journalistic organizations—members of the European Data Journalism Network (EDJNet)—studied voter abstention from all types of elections across Europe over the last 50 years. It examined voter turnout in relation to 16 socio-economic indicators, analyzing a total of 697 elections in the 27 Member States from 1974 to 2023.
