Note: This table shows parliamentary elections for all EU states
other than for presidential or semi-presidential systems where the results from presidential elections are shown.
  1. The accuracy/currency of electoral registers varies greatly between these counties. Where, for instance, they include a significant number of deceased voters the percentages shown will underestimate the true figure.
  2. A number of the voting age populations are for the previous national election. In such cases the rates are over estimates if the population is increasing and vice versa. This explains why some of the rates in this column are higher than those in the column based on registered voters.
  3. Elections in Luxembourg are divided into four multi-member circumscriptions. Voters may vote for as many candidates as the circumscription elects Deputies. The number of voters for each list therefore cannot be stated.
  4. Provisional results excluding Staffordshire South.

Didn't I just tell you. When he got to London they'd give the poor bugger nothing to do and he's having to spend his lonely hours on this sort of thing. Get a proper job, John... or a life!
