In total, almost 40% of people in the Dutch News poll had voted in the Netherlands before, while 24% were first time voters.

Almost 30% said they were not eligible to vote, because they came from outside the EU, while 3.5% did not know they had to register to vote for the EU elections.

Dutch News is aware of a number of potential voters who were not aware they had to sign up with their local council to do so.
