Information for voters - European Elections 2014

Citizens of the UK, Republic of Ireland, Cyprus and Malta are eligible to vote in all UK and European Parliamentary Elections. If you are a citizen of one of the other European Union countries, you can register to vote in the UK at the European Parliamentary Election rather than in your home country.

To be eligible to vote in the next European Parliamentary Election, you must be on the electoral register by no later than Tuesday 6 May 2014. You can find out more about electoral registration by contacting your local council.

Every voter has the option to either cast their vote in person at a polling station between 7am and 10pm on Thursday 22 May or alternatively to vote by post. Again, your local council will have details of how you can apply for a postal/proxy vote or to appoint a proxy to vote on your behalf.

In the West Midlands Region, a number of authorities will have both European Parliamentary Elections and Local Elections and possibly Neighbourhood Planning Referendums. Voters in those areas will have the chance to vote in different polls on the same day. You can find out more about these by contacting your local council.
