European Parliamentary elections
The European Parliamentary election results have garnered a lot of interest and the results look like they will be shaping our national politics going forward.
Within the borough, the European Parliamentary elections had a higher turnout at 41% than the Borough elections that had taken place a couple of weeks earlier.
The UK was divided into 11 regions for these elections; nine in England and one for Scotland and one for Wales (Gibraltar was included within the south-west of England region).
Seats in the election were allocated via the D'Hondt system, a type of proportional representation (Victor D'Hondt was a 19th Century Belgian mathematician).
The results from Epsom & Ewell were fed into the South East region. The results for the borough were broadly in-line with the rest of the region with the Brexit party with the greatest number of votes, followed by the Liberal Democrats and then the Greens.
The official announcements of the results for the borough and the South East of England region follow. The latter also details the names of our new MEPs. For more information please see our website.
