Crofton is in the ”Yorkshire and the Humber” constituency of the European Parliament, which is elected by the proportional representation voting method. There are 6 MEPs which represent the area. The current representatives (Linda McAvan; Timothy Kirkhope; Richard Corbett; Jane Collins; Amjad Bashir and Mike Hookem) were elected on 22 May 2014 for a period of 5 years.
As a result of the referendum vote of June 2016 to leave the European Union, it is likely, or at least possible, that the UK will cease to have any representation in the European Parliament after March 2019. The next elections would have been due in May 2019.
