European Elections

The European parliamentary elections are scheduled to be held on Thursday, 23 May 2019. This is to elect eight Members of the European Parliament to represent the London region.

To vote, you must be on the Electoral Register and eligible to vote in these elections. Every household in Barnet was sent a 'Household Notification Letter’ in March, which listed everyone registered to vote at that address.

If you were listed on the Household Notification Letter, you don’t need to do anything.  However, if you were not listed, you will need to register online by visiting www.gov.uk/register-to-vote (if you haven’t already done so). 

Once registered, you can apply to vote by post (by 5pm Wednesday 8 May 2019) or apply to vote by proxy (by 5pm on Wednesday 15 May 2019).

Important information for EU Citizens living in the UK

If you are an EU citizen registered to vote in the UK, you are not automatically entitled to vote in the UK for the European Parliamentary election on 23 May 2019.

By default, European Union citizens are able to vote in their home country at this election.  However, you can choose to vote in the UK.  To do this, you must complete a separate registration form.

Barnet’s Electoral Services have already sent this additional registration form to all EU citizens currently on our electoral register. EU citizens must complete and return this form by Tuesday 7 May if they wish to vote in the UK on 23 May 2019. You cannot vote in more than one country.

You can also download the European Parliament voter registration form and send it to ero@barnet.gov.uk

To find out more about how to register and the ways you can vote, visit: www.barnet.gov.uk/elections or contact Barnet Electoral Services at ero@barnet.gov.uk or call 020 8359 5577.
