Examines the cross‐country variations in turnout in European Parliament elections and of variations in the variables associated with turnout. Countries are considered in three groups—high turnout, medium turnout, and low turnout countries. Within the groups defined, each of the 12 member states is considered separately, paying due attention to the national, institutional, cultural, and political context.

Keywords:   abstention, cross‐country comparisons, cultural context, elections, european integration, european parliament, institutional context, participation, political context, turnout
