Thursday was the last day for Czechs to submit applications to vote in the European Parliament elections at other locations other than where they are registered as having permanent residence. In spite of the state holiday, offices at local councils were open to take applications which could also be submitted in electronic form by the end of the day. Offices said interest was less than in the parliamentary elections last October but higher than for the European elections four years ago. Voting to the European Parliament takes place on May 23 and 24 with Czechs returning 21 representatives this time round to the parliament in Brussels.
