Saturday May 24, Slovakian and Latvian citizens will be able to cast their vote and choose their representative in the European Parliament for the next five years. These elections are extremely important as there is a critical need for more vocal Christians in the European Parliament. Although Christianity is by far the biggest religion in Europe, Christians are underrepresented in the European Parliament. You can help changing this by voting Christian candidates in Slvoakia and Latvia!
