Members of the European Parliament for France are chosen proportionally, according to the votes received by each list of candidates, provided that the list receives more than 5% of the votes.
The expenses of the campaign are reimbursed for lists above 3%, but even this seems unlikely.
The list closest to my ideas has zero chance of making it past the 5% mark. Should I cast my vote on them, would it make any impact on the final result?
Or in other words, is there any difference between a list receiving 0.1% of the votes and 4.99% ?
