Voting system

EU elections in the UK are run using the ‘party list’ system, rather than the ‘first past the post’ system.

The party list system is a type of proportional representation. This is where seats are shared out proportionately, according to the share of the vote. For example, if a region had 10 seats available and one party received 50% of the vote, they would win five seats. 

When casting your vote, you choose a party, rather than an individual candidate. Each party has a list of candidates, presented in preferential order. If a party secures enough votes to win a seat, the first candidate on their list takes that seat. If the party wins enough votes for two seats, Candidates 1 and 2 from their list are elected, and so on.

In this region, there are seven seats available.
