Free Voters (German: Freie Wähler; abbreviated as FW) is a group of politicians which takes part in the elections but is not registered as a political party. Free Voters usually only run in the local elections. The group attracts conservative voters who prefer local decisions in politics.

In the 2014 European Parliament elections, the Free Voters won a seat in the European Parliament. Ulrike Müller is currently the only Free Voter MEP in the European Parliament.[1] The Free Voters association joined the European Democratic Party (which is a centrist and pro-European Union political party in the European Parliament) in October 2015.[2]
