UK Euro election and Peterborough by-election

A European Parliament election is taking place in the UK on May 23 following the postponement of Brexit. PA has delivered full nominations and results coverage for the UK component of these polls in the past and will do so again. See below for an advisory on PA’s coverage of this poll.

Note that PA does not provide EU-wide elections data but covers the outcome in its editorial reports.

A Commons by-election is also taking place at Peterborough on June 6, triggered by a successful recall petition following the conviction of sitting MP Fiona Onasanya for lying about a speeding offence. An advisory about our elections data coverage of this poll is below.
