It is European election day Medway.
Across the area and the UK, voters have the chance to elect the MEPs that may or may not represent us in the European Parliament for the next five years.
Medway is part of the South East region, which will select 10 MEPs on a proportional basis.
Polling stations are now open and remain open until 10pm.
If you have received your polling card, you will know where you need to go to vote. If you are registered to vote but have not received your card, you do not need it to vote. Just go to your polling station, confirm your name and address, and you will be allowed to vote. No ID is required.
If you have a postal vote, but did not remember to return it in time, you can drop it in to your polling station up until polls close at 10pm.
To find who our candidates are, Medway Elects have a handy list of each party and their list of candidates.
Once the polls close at 10pm, we will begin waiting with baited breath for the results, which will likely arrive somewhere around midnight on Sunday.
A lot of work goes into keeping The Political Medway running. We are a volunteer based, non-profit project, and yet we are still trying to produce daily content, cover council meetings as they happen, as well as provide as much information about elections as possible. If you appreciate what we do, please consider making a small donation – one-off or monthly – via Ko-fi to help us cover our costs and keep this ridiculous project going.
