The 736 Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) are elected once every five years, the most recent election being on 22nd May 2014. The UK is represented by 73
MEPs and is split into twelve electoral regions, of which the North West Region is represented by 8 MEPs. Kelsall sits within the North West Region, so these 8 MEPs are effectively representing the residents of
Kelsall. The voting system used in the UK for European elections is a convoluted form of proportional representation, and is well described on the website of the
UK Office of the European Parliament.
