Vote for Europe!

Vote for Europe!

The first election to vote for Members of the European Parliament took place on 7 June 1979. The election addresses of the candidates go into great detail about how the election will work, and express their hopes and fears for the new assembly. These addresses are a sample from candidates in the Bristol Constituency. Special Collections continues to collect election addresses, party manifestos, and other materials produced during elections, and is currently collecting materials relating to the elections to the European Parliament on 4 June 2009.
