Electoral system


The six representatives to the European Parliament are elected in a single constituency, similar to in elections for the Chamber of Deputies. Each voter could either select a party list or distribute six votes (with up to two to a single candidate), with the final seat tally calculated by a Hagenbach-Bischoff quota.

In addition to Luxembourgish citizens, voting was open to European Union citizens resident in Luxembourg. Voting is compulsory for all eligible enrolled voters who are under 75 years of age.[2]
