Dutch voters on Thursday kicked off a four-day election marathon across the 27 nations of the European Union -- providing an early litmus test of how far right the next EU parliament might shift.

The EU's 370 million voters are called to the polls at a time of deep geopolitical uncertainty for the bloc, two and a half years after Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Most other countries in the bloc will vote on Sunday.
