The full list of candidates for the forthcoming European Parliamentary Elections has been published.
Eleven political parties will contest the elections on Thursday May 22 to choose the North West of England’s eight Members of the European Parliament (MEPs). At the same time, electors in the Preston Council area will be choosing 20 councillors in local elections. Voters go to the polls on Thursday May 22 for both elections.
Preston Council local election results will be counted on May 23 and the North West European Parliamentary Elections count will take place on Sunday May 25, as polls close across Europe. People will not be able to vote in either election unless they have ensured they are on the electoral register by Tuesday May 6.
Anyone who is on the electoral register can choose to register to vote by post.
