On Thursday 22 May local council elections in England and Northern Ireland will take place.

Voters will also be able to vote in the European Parliamentary elections on the same day. It is the only time outside of a general election when all 46 million voters can take part.

With a year to go before the next general election, the results of the local elections could send a signal to the parties at Westminster and are your chance to decide who runs your local services.

The European Parliament is the only directly elected institution in the EU, and therefore this is the only chance - once every five years - for voters to decide who will represent them in Brussels.

The vote will be the biggest yet and could see an unprecedented battle over the bloc's powers and role.
