The European Parliamentary Elections (Franchise of Relevant Citizens of the Union) Regulations 2001 require EU citizens to provide a declaration before they can vote. These Regulations were made under section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972 and implement Council Directive 93/109/EC which lays down the arrangements for EU citizens to vote and stand as candidates in another Member State. This is a requirement under EU law which is intended to prevent double voting across the EU.
