About the European Parliament Elections

MEPs are elected under a proportional representation system. In the UK you have one vote to elect all of your MEPs. Each party puts forward a list of candidates called a 'regional list' and you vote for one of these lists or for an independent candidate.

The parties are then allocated a number of MEPs according to their share of the vote.

South Oxfordshire District Council forms part of the South East of England region.

The Regional Returning Officer, Mark Heath, will administer the poll and declaration of results for the South East of England.

These will be the eighth Europe-wide elections to the European parliament since the first direct elections in 1979.
