Legislation has been in place since 1994 which ensures that the UK is in compliance with

its European Union obligations regarding EU citizens’ right to vote in European

Parliamentary elections whilst resident in the UK

The Government took all the legal steps necessary to prepare for the European

Parliamentary elections and put in place all the legislative and funding elements to enable

Returning Officers to make their preparations required for the polls.
