The chief cities are Elbląg, Olsztyn and Białystok. With just two seats representing 2,651,000 people, Podlaskie and Warmian-Masurian is the most under-represented constituency in the entire European Union.[1]


The relevant Polish legislation ("The Act of 23 January 2004 on Elections to the European Parliament"[2]) establishing the constituencies does not give the constituencies formal names. Instead, each constituency has a number, territorial description, and location of the Constituency Electoral Commission. The 2004 Polish National Election Commission[3] and the 2004 European Parliament Election website[4] uses the territorial description when referring to the constituency, not the electoral commission location.
