Your MEPs

There are 73 UK MEPs. They are elected in Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Other EU member states elect MEPs from their countries. Elections take place every 5 years and the next elections will be held in 2019. The UK is divided into 12 electoral regions made up of the nations and regions of the UK.
