Elections to the European Parliament took place in Slovakia on 24 May 2014. It was the third European election which took place in Slovakia.

Thirteen MEPs were elected from Slovakia using a proportional list system joining the other candidates elected as part of the wider 2014 European Parliament election

The 'faster processing of interim results' was promised by the Slovak Office for Statistics because of a new electronic counting system.[2]

Turnout, at 13% of registered voters, was the lowest across the EU.
