Election

Polls are open from 7:00am to 10pm to elect 6 MEPs in the single constituency which is Scotland.  In this election you vote for the party, each of which has six candidates.  The number of MEPs a party gets elected dependss on the number of votes the party gets.

So here are the parties and candidates standing.

I voted Conservative - no surprise there. The pundits expect 2 SNP and 2 Labour to be elected.  Most suggest there will also be one Conservative.  With Liberals (who held one seat in the last parliament) expected to lose out and the Greens showing in polls alongside them around 6%, the final seat could be between UKIP and a a third seat for the SNP.

Your call.
