Launch of the Volebný Kompas 2023 voting advice application

We have launched a new voting advice application (VAA) called ‘Volebný kompas’ to help Slovak voters make an informed decision in the 2023 Slovak snap parliamentary elections. The tool was launched in a joint effort by our Institute for Democracy at Matej Bel University and the European Governance and Politics Programme at the European University Institute.

Available in Slovak, Hungarian, and English, Volebný kompas invites users to react to 39 policy statements covering a wide range of contemporary policy issues and political values in Slovak politics. After completing the survey, users can see how their views match the programmes of eleven parties participating in the election that were studied and coded by the project team.

The tool is freely available at
