    It seems the EU elections are going to happen. I know of someone who already got their postal vote with the parties (and candidate lists) on.

    So are you going to vote in these elections or not?

    If you're not voting then how come?

    If you are voting then who are you voting for, and what is going to be your biggest influence?

    Yep. I'm going to stay up all night and watch the results come in. I'll be voting Lib Dem for the obvious reason that I want a second referendum and I believe that voting Lib Dem is the only way to get that.

    Edit: I also like the Lib Dems from a policy point of view so it is not a one issue vote.

    Yep, currently deciding between change uk and the lib Dems, need to do some digging into the candidates for the South West before I decide.

    The two main parties, under their current leadership and positioning, are not parties any sane or rational person who spends even the slightest time considering their actions, would vote for.

    Unless I get some concrete intel that Labour will support revoke A50 or a PV 100%, I will be voting Lib Dem. I am stunned that some people are still supporting UKIP despite their extreme and horrible comments, and taste in candidates.

    I will vote. UKIP, the SNP and Greens will be at the bottom of the list.

    I’ll be voting for the Brexit party, not that I like them (especially Farage) but more to give the establishment the kick up the backside that a huge vote for his mob you’d think/hope would.

    And fwiw, I voted remain but accept that leave won and strongly believe the will of the people should be carried through instead of the crap we’ve had for months.

    For what it's worth I wrote to my Labour MP that I will not vote for Labour in the EU or any other election unless they clearly commit (at the least) to a confirmatory referendum on any Brexit deal.

    I did exactly the same, despite him being a strong PV advocate, his overall party's Shadow Cabinet is too soft with JC at the helm.

    I will be voting and most likely for the Lib Dem’s as they are a remain party. I voted Labour my whole life, was even a member until last year, but will never vote for them again.

    I've been a lifelong Labour voter, but they are a lost cause to me now. Even if they finally get behind a confirmatory referendum, I don't trust the leadership to steer it through. So, I'll be voting either Libdems or Greens (need to research the candidates in my area).

    I will be voting Lib Dem or Change UK, I'd love to vote Green but they're a little too authoritarian for my liking.

    Green or SNP or maybe reverse for maximum effect.

    Green , LD, or CUK

    Will need to see the lists before I do. Probably more likely LD, I think we need them to bounce back in national politics and every vote they get in every election helps build the momentum

    Lib Dem most likely. Hopefully get my polling card soon. I didn't get my local elections one until the actual day of the vote!

    You don’t need your card to vote. Saying that mine arrived last week.
