Voting advice application comparison

This is a chart comparing the voting advice applications for the 2019 European Parliament election of:

🇨🇿 Czech Republic (Volební kalkulačka EP 2019 by KohoVolit.eu)
🇩🇪 Germany (Wahl-O-Mat zur Europawahl 2019 by Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung)

The English translations and similarity classifications (connections between the questions) are original work. This information was not provided by the authors of the voting advice apps and might therefore be inaccurate.

Please refer to the websites of the voting advice apps to learn about the method used to choose the questions:

There is a second voting advice app in the Czech Republic - Volební kalkulačka by Programy do Voleb. This one was not chosen for the comparison because it does not publish any information on the method used to choose the questions.
