VoteWatch Europe is a small, independent not-for-profit organisation. Our goal is to promote better insight into EU politics by making information on the decision-making process of the European Parliament and the Council of Ministers available in a user-friendly, searchable format.
We rely on grants, paid services and donations to maintain and improve our core activities. You can help us by making a donation, however small.
We accept donations via PayPal/credit card (click below).
