The East Midlands was a UKIP heartland area during the party’s peak years of 2013–14, and 59% of its voters backed Leave in the Brexit referendum. UKIP topped the poll here in the last European parliament elections, but their supporters have almost all now switched to the Brexit Party. According to the latest polling, they are guaranteed two of the region’s five seats. Labour and the Liberal Democrats are almost certain of a seat each. The last of the region’s five seats will depend on whether the Conservatives’ vote collapse can be stemmed. If not, Farage’s party will likely pick it up. With voters able to cast only a single vote for a party list, the Democratic Audit team reviews likely outcomes and the main potentially electable candidates.
