EU Parliament Elections – Thursday 23rd May

Every 5 years we get to have our say about who represents us in the European Union Parliament.

We haven’t left the EU (yet) so we still have a say on who that will be. The Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) we elect don’t have a say on Brexit, that’s down to our MPs in Westminster, but they will be there to carry out normal duties until such point we do leave.

Polling is from 7am to 10pm on Thursday 23rd, and the results will be counted and announced on Sunday.

Don’t worry if you’ve lost your Polling Card, you don’t need it to vote.
