The average over these four years was higher, at 59%. But even this calculation does not take account of UK primary legislation or EU ‘soft law’ such as statements, recommendations, guidelines, declarations, special reports etc, which may be implemented equally ‘softly’ in the UK.
About twice as many people vote in UK general elections as in European Parliament elections. Turnout at the 2015 General Election was 66.1% and at the last European Parliament election, 35.6%. Across Europe, turnout has fallen steadily. In the UK, turnout has never been over 40%.

Let’s leave and have government that works effectively, elected by you and accountable to you.
For the change we need, please vote Leave on 23 June.
