Medway Elects
European Parliament

The European parliament is the directly-elected parliamentary institution of the European Union. It shares its legislative function with the Council of the European Union and the European commission.

Voters in the United Kingdom elected members of the European parliament (MEPs) between its formation as an elected assembly in July 1979 and the UK's departure from the European Union on 31 January 2020.

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England are currently reviewing Medway's ward boundaries. The new boundaries are expected to increase the number of councillors in Medway from 55 to 59 and will be introduced for the next elections to Medway council in 2023. They have launched a public consultation for residents and organisations in Medway to help them decide where the boundaries should be drawn. The consultation is open until 2 March 2020, with draft recommendations due to be published in June 2020. You can have your say on the new boundaries by clicking the button below, which will take you to the Local Government Boundary Commission for England's consultation.
