European Parliamentary Elections 2014

Electoral Region of Wales

On Thursday 22nd May 2014 voters throughout Wales will have the opportunity to vote and elect four Members to the European Parliament.

Elections to the European Parliament will be held in all member states of the European Union between 22nd and 25th May 2014, as decided unanimously by a decision of the Council of the European Union.  They will be the eighth Europe-wide election to the European Parliament since the first direct elections in 1979.

European Parliamentary elections are held every five years and the electoral region of Wales returns four Members to the European Parliament. There are 11 electoral regions within the United Kingdom returning 73 of the 766 Members.

Members are elected under a proportional election system with candidates standing as part of a registered political party list system. Candidates may also stand individually. Voters will be able to vote for ONE political party or individual candidate.

The electoral region of Wales is broken down into 22 local counting areas based on county/county borough boundaries. The administrative process is overseen by the Regional Returning Officer assisted by 22 Local Returning Officers for each local counting area.

Following the close of poll on 22nd May 2014 ballot papers will be verified locally by the Local Returning Officers and the results forwarded to the Regional Returning Officer to compile the total votes cast and establish the regional turnout. Ballot papers are then sealed for counting on Sunday 25th May by Local Returning Officers.

When they have completed the counting, Local Returning Officers will inform the Regional Returning Officer of the result of the count in their counting area.

Once the Regional Returning Officer has received all of the results from each local counting area he will announce the regional result for Wales. Local results cannot be announced  before 10.00pm on 25th May 2014 as this is the time that polls close in some parts of Europe.

Can I vote?

You can vote in these elections if you are registered to vote in the United Kingdom and are 18 or over on 22nd May 2014 and are:

  • a British citizen
  • a British citizen living abroad
  • a qualifying Commonwealth citizen
  • a citizen of the Irish Republic
  • a European citizen living within the United Kingdom


You must be registered to vote

If you are not already on the electoral register you can register up to Tuesday 6th May 2014. You will need to contact your local authority Electoral Registration Officer. If you are not sure whether you are registered to vote you will need to check with your local authority's electoral services office.

How can I vote?

In person on 22nd May 2014.

Most people vote in person at their polling station. It's straightforward but if you are not sure what to do, a member of the staff will be pleased to help you.

You should receive a poll card telling you where your polling station is. If it doesn't arrive, you can ask your local authority where the polling station is. You don't need your poll card to vote, so don't worry if you lose or forget it.

Polling stations will be open from 7.00am until 10.00pm. Make sure you arrive in plenty of time.

By post

If you are not already a postal voter you will need to apply to vote by post. If you are not a postal voter and wish to use this method you will need to submit an application form to your local authority. They will be able to supply you with an application form. This has to be received back by 5.00pm on Wednesday 7th May 2014. You can also get a postal vote application form from www.aboutmyvote.co.uk .

If you are registered to vote by post, you should receive your ballot papers about two weeks before polling day. If it doesn't arrive by Friday 16th May 2014, you must contact your local authority and request a replacement. Please return your postal vote as soon as possible. Alternatively, you may hand the postal return envelope into one of the polling stations within your County/County Borough.

By proxy

If you can't go to the polling station and don't wish to vote by post, you may be able to vote by proxy. This means allowing somebody you trust to vote on your behalf.

You will need to send an application form to your local authority's elections office to arrive by 5.00pm on Wednesday 14th May 2014. When you apply for a proxy vote you have to state why you can't vote in person.

If, in the six days before polling day, you have a medical emergency or find that you cannot go to the polling station because of work reasons, you can apply for an emergency proxy. This needs to be made by 5.00pm on 22nd May 2014 and your application will need to be attested.
