Last Modified March 21, 2024

On Thursday 23 May 2019 European Union Parliamentary elections were held for the area of Hertsmere as part of the Eastern Region. This was for the election of seven Members to the Parliament of the European Union on behalf of the region. This was done using the party list system. 

The count took place at Allum Hall in Borehamwood on Sunday 26 May and was attended by nominees from the political parties. 

Voter turnout was 36.39 per cent. 

The results have now been posted.

Where do I vote?

For the local elections on the 2 May 2019 new ward boundaries were put in place and the same polling stations will be used for the European elections.  You should have received a Polling Card which told you where to vote.

To help identify your polling district, polling station and related details you can use our polling address search page.
The polling stations were open from 7am to 10pm on the day of the election.

What if I can’t get to my polling station?
