EU parliamentary elections

Please note you do not need to bring ID to vote at a polling station in these elections. 

European parliamentary parties and individual candidates

Postal voting

Unfortunately the deadline to apply for a postal vote in time for the EU parliamentary election has now passed.

When your postal vote ballot pack is posted will be determined by when you applied:
Application received Posting date
Before 29 April 8 May
29 April to 8 May 13 May

Overseas voters

An approximate timescale for postage is 3-5 working days within Europe and 5-7 working days for deliveries outside Europe. 

You must return your postal vote so it arrives by 23 May.

If you haven’t already registered for an overseas postal vote then we recommend you nominate a proxy to vote on your behalf. This is because of the short time between the election being announced and polling day. To act as your proxy, you will need to nominate someone who currently resides in the UK and is already registered to vote themselves. The deadline to nominate a proxy is 5pm Wednesday 15 May.

Apply for a proxy vote

If you already have an overseas postal vote then unfortunately you can no longer nominate a proxy as the deadline for amendments to existing postal votes has now passed.

EU nationals

EU nationals have the option to vote either in their home country or here in the UK. All EU nationals registered before 1 April 2019 will receive a form through the post. The deadline to register to vote has now passed.
