@DaveCph The biggest difference between most European elections and US elections, is probably that in the US, you have to sign up to vote, whereas in European elections, if you're a citizen of the country and of voting age, you will automatically be signed up to vote, and will get your voting card in the mail.

So even if you only remember to think about voting on election day itself, you can go vote, because there's no preparation needed, you just grab your card, and go cast your vote.
