The European Parliament elections will take place on the 23rd of May. Because of the Brexit extension, you can still cast your vote. To register to vote, visit gov.uk
It is advised that you do as soon as possible if you want to have a say in these elections. If you are a citizen of another EU country living in the UK you can choose to vote either here or in your home country.
Polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm on Thursday the 23rd of May. If you are unable to go on that day there are still ways to cast your vote. You can apply to vote by post, provided you do so by the 8th of May. You have until 5pm on the 15th of May to apply to vote by proxy, meaning that someone will vote on your behalf. Once again, you need to go to gov.uk for either of these.
If the deadlines have passed, and you’re unable to vote at your polling station because you have a medical emergency or learn that you can’t go to the polling station because of work reasons, you should contact your local council to apply to vote by emergency proxy.
You can visit wheredoivote.co.uk to find your local polling station or contact your local council. You can also get free election reminders from that website so you don’t miss out on future votes.
