European Parliamentary elections (Northern Ireland)

We have published our guidance for the European Parliamentary elections.

While currently these elections are not due to take place in the UK, this guidance advises parties, candidates and campaigners on the rules should the elections go ahead.

The elections will take place in other EU Member States between Thursday 23 and Sunday 26 May 2019. For the purposes of this guidance, we have assumed that, should the elections go ahead in the UK, polling day would be Thursday 23 May.

This page contains our guidance and resources on how to comply with the rules on spending and donations for candidates and agents in Northern Ireland.

If you are a candidate or agent in Great Britain please see Guidance for candidates and agents at European Parliamentary elections in Great Britain.
