Don't miss your chance to vote in the European Parliamentary elections
Last Modified April 17, 2019
The European Parliamentary elections are due to take place in May, so make sure your name is on the register so you can have your say and vote.
This will be for the election of seven Members to the Parliament of the European Union on Thursday 23 May unless a withdrawal agreement is reached before then.
To have your say on who gets elected you must be registered to vote. The deadline for registering is Tuesday 7 May. If you have not yet registered to vote, or if you have moved house recently, you will need to register in order to be able to vote.
Details of the candidates will be published on our European Elections 2019 page as soon as possible after Wednesday 24 April when they are confirmed, but it is down to individuals and their parties to promote themselves and why they want you to vote for them.
You can also see the notice of election, which was published on Monday (15 April), via this page.
Voting in person at a polling station
If you want to vote in person and are registered, a poll card will be sent to you about five weeks before the election. If you have not received a poll card please contact our Electoral Services team on 020 8207 7481 or email the Electoral Services team. The card tells you where you should vote – you can only vote at your allocated polling station. It is helpful if you take your poll card with you but you don’t have to.
New ward boundaries were put in place after the local elections on 2 May. However, the same polling stations will be used for the European elections.
We have a poll station location finder on our elections 2019 page that enables residents to find out where they vote simply by entering their address into the search bar.
Voting by post
If you are registered for a postal vote you will be sent your ballot paper before the election and you will need to post it back to us. To vote by post you need to apply and forms have to be completed and returned by 5pm on Wednesday 8 May.
Voting by proxy
Proxy voting means another person can vote on your behalf. If for any reason you are unable to vote in person on 23 May, you may choose a proxy. To have a proxy vote, forms have to be completed and returned to Electoral Services by 5pm on Wednesday 8 May.
If you are unsure if you are registered to vote or want a hard copy of any of the application forms please call 020 8207 7481 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
