Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm a party member so I've seen the internal workings of selecting our MEP candidates, and receive updates every so often about the work that my elected MEPs have been doing.  I'm not always clear on whether correspondence I get will have an audience wider than party members but I suspect not.

So for people who are not politically involved or aware, I am not surprised that there is little interest because unless you go looking you aren't likely to come across information that puts these elections into much context for you as an individual. The media aren't running with it yet.  So what will motivate people to vote on something they have little concept of (in the UK at least)?

I'm wondering if any social research or more detailed opinion polls have been carried out looking at people's perceptions of the EU, MEPS etc.
