Nearly 38 percent, or more than a third of British voters know neither of neither the upcoming European elections (May 22 in the UK) nor of the local polls on the same day.

A survey conducted by the Daily Mirror also shows that Nigel Farage's anti-immigration UKIP is set to win most MEP seats in the vote on Thursday.

UKIP will count on 32% of the ballots according to the poll, with the Labor Party trailing behind with 27%, the ruling Conservatives coming third (23%) and their partners from the Liberal Democrats fourth (9%).

The Labor Party is tipped for the first place in the councillor vote with a predicted result of 34%, double the output of the UKIP, which is expected to be third with 17.7 percent, while Tories will get 23.9% and the Lib Dems 12.9 of the ballots.

Basing its claims on the survey, the Daily Mirror argues the success that the anti-establishment UKIP will enjoy at the European elections is related to the fact that more of their supporters are aware that polls will be held and are likely to vote.
