Voting & the Electoral Commission
The Electoral Commission makes recommendations about the voting process. They also keep an eye on political parties in order to make sure that politicians aren't up to anything naughty.
All EU members have a fair share of MEPs, reflecting the size of the country. For instance, Germany has more MEPs than Malta, because Malta's tiny and Germany's huge!
MEPs are elected through a system of proportional representation. This means that each political party draws up a list of people who are members of their party who they would like to be elected in order of preference. Each voter votes not for a particular candidate but for a party. Depending on the number of votes each party gets, they will be allowed to have a certain number of MEPs.
