A total of 7998 Bulgarians have applied to vote abroad in the country’s May 25 2014 European Parliament elections, it emerged on May 6 as the deadline passed for the setting up of polling stations abroad.

All citizens who had given notice that they intend to vote outside the country already have been removed from the lists in Bulgaria, electoral officials said.

In Bulgaria’s 2014 European Parliament elections, in which voters will be choosing 17 MEPs, Bulgaria will open 168 polling stations in 35 countries, most of them within the European Union.

The most polling stations will be in Spain, 46, and in the United Kingdom, 25. There will be 12 in France, 11 in Greece, 10 in Germany and seven in Cyprus.

In Turkey, there will be just one polling station, in Istanbul, and one in the United States, in New York.
