THANK YOU, for your votes!
Why is a pan-European party running in Zurich?
More than 400,000 people live in Zurich, making it the most populous city in Switzerland. Out of these, about a third are Europeans who have neither Swiss citizenship nor voting rights.
We at Volt believe that progressive politics should not stop at the borders of Switzerland nor should the Swiss democracy be tight to just the Swiss Nationality, especially on the local level.
We are committed to a city where all people have equal opportunities to develop their full potential. Nationalism and populism are not an option. We are committed to a Zurich that strives for the highest standards of human, social, ecological and technical development.
Following the motto "think globally, act locally", we solve precisely such problems directly on the ground.
As a municipal council, our top priority is to achieve these goals, to continue them and to implement them after the upcoming municipal council elections.
Support us - for a humane, solidary Europe, in which we all - also in the future! - can live equally and freely. #JointheChange

What was our goal in this election?
We see this election as an opportunity to position ourselves in Zurich for the first time, to draw attention to Volt, to ensure more political discourse and to strengthen European values. Zurich needs Europe. And Europe needs Zurich.
Europe and Zurich
Zurich is nationally and internationally connected as never before, and so are our challenges: it is time to confront the major problems with European solutions.
