The European Parliament elections are scheduled for June 2024. The Vice-President of the EC has invited Taylor Swift to help popularize participation in these elections. Margaritis Schinas emphasized that the singer exerts a significant influence over the youth. To back this claim, he mentioned that last year, just a day after her call for people to register to vote in the US, 35,000 Americans promptly acted upon it.

Will Taylor Swift Influence Young Voters?

Taylor Swift boasts a following of 279 million people on Instagram. Her words undoubtedly impact society. Margaritis Schinas aims to leverage this reach. He proposed that the singer motivate the youth during her European concerts.

- "Taylor Swift will be in Paris on May 9th, on Europe Day, for a concert. I sincerely hope she echoes our message to young Europeans. I hope that a member of her media team views this press conference and passes on our request to her." - expressed the Vice-President of the European Commission at a media press conference.

It's worth noting that at the end of 2023, Taylor Swift earned the distinction of being Time magazine's "Person of the Year." Moreover, her concert tour and the film based on her life shattered popularity records.
