Exciting Proposal Emerges to Make Election Night More Entertaining and Eurovision-esque: «Fantasy»

As more than 22,500 polling stations opened their doors this Sunday across Spain for the 38 million eligible voters to decide on the 61 euro deputies who will represent the country in the European Parliament for the next five years, a unique and entertaining proposal has taken social media by storm.

Spain has been electing its European representatives since becoming a member of the European Union in 1986, marking the ninth time it participates in this democratic process. The electoral journey began on Friday, June 7, with the citizens of the Netherlands casting their votes for euro deputies. Following the Dutch, Ireland and the Czech Republic held their elections on Saturday, June 8. The voting process will culminate on Sunday, June 9, once all member states have completed their electoral days. In Spain, polling stations will close at 22:00, but the electoral night will not conclude until all 27 member countries have finished their voting processes.

To add excitement and entertainment to the waiting period for media outlets and political figures involved, a social media user suggested through their official X account (formerly Twitter) adopting the same informative model as Swiss television to announce the percentage of votes obtained by each political party. The user proposed that RTVE imitate the Swiss television style to announce the results, which they described as a «fantasy Eurovision electoral.» The follower urged RTVE to emulate Sveriges Television (SVT) in presenting the election results in a Eurovision-inspired manner.

The user’s request to RTVE to incorporate a Eurovision-like style in announcing the election results has stirred excitement and anticipation among social media users, drawing parallels between the election night atmosphere and the Eurovision Song Contest. The proposal suggests a visually engaging and celebratory approach to presenting the election results, reminiscent of the Eurovision voting process where each country offers their points to the participants, accompanied by live footage of the artists’ reactions.

With the anticipation building up for the announcement of the election results, the incorporation of a «fantasy Eurovision» style could potentially transform the traditional electoral night into a more entertaining and engaging experience for viewers and political enthusiasts alike.
