Graphic News

April 12, 2019 -- Die Teilnahme an der Wahl zum Europa Parlament am 23. Mai wird die UK Regierung mehr als £100 Millionen kosten, wenn man die Kosten für die letzte Wahl in 2014 zum Vergleich heranzieht.

Key Facts
The elections took place in 12 electoral constituencies across all of the UK and Gibraltar. The total cost was £108,689,344, paid from the UK Government’s Consolidated Fund

This total includes the costs for the distribution of poll cards, the operation of polling stations, provision of postal votes, the count, and the fees paid to returning officers for their services in delivering the elections. It also includes the cost of the delivery of candidates’ election leaflets.

It included:
• £2.5 million for returning officers’ services;
• £40.6 million for candidate mailings

At the election:
• 46.5 million people were registered and eligible to vote; of whom,
• 7.2 million were registered to vote by post; and
• 16.5 million cast a vote.

The elections were conducted by:
• 11 Regional Returning Officers;
• 381 Local Returning Officers; and
• the Chief Electoral Officer for Northern Ireland, with the support of local authority electoral services teams, local authority staff and resources more widely, and the Electoral Office for Northern Ireland.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
