Campaigners raise £40,000 in funds for legal challenge following election

Following the election of MEPs last weekend, it has been alleged that tens of thousands of non-British EU nationals were prevented from casting their ballots due to administrative blunders. Two campaign groups have launched a crowdfunding website to fund an application for a judicial review of the process. The campaign has since generated over £40,000 to fund a team of lawyers who will assess the case.

David Mundy, partner and parliamentary agent in our public law team, comments in The Times on whether the EU nationals in the UK have a valid claim and explains that the requirement under EU law is that registration should be allowed sufficiently in advance of voting day, however the very short notice given in this case has made that difficult.
