The European Parliament elections are being held on May 23rd, where Wales gets to vote for four MEP’s as a ‘region’.

You can register to vote online here.

The MEP’s will get voted in via proportional representation, in an order as listed by their party, so those at the top of the party list are more likely to be elected. The number of MEPs per party is sorted out via the d’Hondt method, which is a ‘highest averages method for allocating seats’ – there is an explainer to this on Wikipedia here.

We have attempted to contact every single party, inviting them to forward on our questions to all of their candidates and also asking for relevant social media links and profile images so we can give you more detail on who they are.

The full party and candidate list is below, and where we have had a reply from the candidate / party that is linked to and highlighted.
