Every vote counts: have your say in Europe s future

DID you know that 75% of UK law is made by the European Union (EU)?

Residents will have the chance to influence the EU by voting on who represents them in the European Parliament on 4 June.

London will elect eight Members of the European Parliament (MEPs).

To be able to vote you must be on the Electoral Register – the deadline to register is 19 May. If you will be away on 4 June you can apply for a postal vote, again by the deadline of 19 May.

All Hackney Polling Stations are wheelchair accessible and there will be staff on hand to assist people with voting.

To register to vote, or for more information about the election, contact Hackney s elections office on 020 8356 3000 or visit www.hackney.gov.uk/elections
