What can I vote for?

This section provides information about the different elected bodies in the UK that your representatives sit in. When you vote, you decide who represents you and makes decisions on your behalf about a whole range of issues – from roads and recycling in your area, to education and climate change.

Everyone in the UK has a local council, an MP who sits in the UK Parliament, and members of the European Parliament who represent you in Europe. Depending on where you live, you may also be represented by devolved bodies, like those that represent Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
