Citizens in the 28 European Union nations will go to the polls this week in an atmosphere of uncertainty — with the specter of Brexit looming over the process and a growing nationalist, euroskeptic movement drawing voter support — to cast ballots for the bloc’s only directly elected body: the European Parliament.

Here’s a guide to the European Parliament elections, a notoriously confusing system made even more so by changing dynamics within the bloc.
