For the purpose of the European Parliament Elections, Scotland is considered to be one large region. For administrative purposes locally, the poll is managed on a constituency basis before the preferences expressed by voters are amalgamated with those for the rest of Scotland.
This voting system means that a total of six individuals, reduced from seven from the previous European election, are elected at the one time to serve the whole of Scotland rather than individual constituencies.
European Elections occur in June every 5 years. The most recent poll took place on Thursday 22nd May 2014, with the counting of the votes on Sunday 25th May 2014. This produced the local totals for the Clackmannanshire Area, which will be added to the other areas in the Scotland Region to produce a regional result. A summary of votes cast has also been produced.
