Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn cast his vote in the European elections in his local London constituency of Islington Thursday morning.
Labour are forecast to come second in the vote, behind Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party, who are 10 points ahead in the polls.
Corbyn arrived alongside his wife Laura Alvarez to vote.
A total of 751 Members of the European Parliament will be elected over the weekend, representing 512 million citizens of the 28 member states. Polling stations in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom were the first to open on Thursday.
Britons are voting elect their 73 MEPs as the United Kingdom, which is set to leave the European Union, extended the Brexit deadline beyond the elections.
It remains unclear what relationship the UK will have with the EU once Brexit is finalized.

Corbyn: The Strange Rebirth of Radical Politics
By Richard Seymour
Richard Seymour tells the story of how Corbyn’s rise was made possible by the long decline of Labour and by a deep crisis in British democracy. He shows how Corbyn began the task of rebuilding Labour as a grassroots party, with a coalition of trade unionists, young and precarious workers, students and ‘Old Labour’ pugilists, who then became the biggest campaigning army in British politics. Utilizing social media, activists turned the media’s Project Fear on its head and broke the ideological monopoly of the tabloids. After the election, with all the artillery still ranged against Corbyn, and with all the weaknesses of the Left’s revival, Seymour asks what Corbyn can do with his newfound success.
