European parliamentary elections
The last European Parliamentary elections were held on 22nd May 2014 in the United Kingdom. They are held every five years and the next ones will be held in June 2019. The date is determined by the council of the European Communities and elections take place throughout Europe between the Thursday and the Sunday of the specified week. This is because Member states traditionally vote on different days of the week, e.g United Kingdom votes on Thursdays, Italy votes on Sundays.
Melton Borough Council is part of the East Midlands Region which is represented by five members of the European Parliament (MEP'S)
