In European elections, Podlaskie and Warmian-Masurian is a constituency of the European Parliament. It consists of the Podlaskie Voivodeship and Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship.

With just two seats representing 2,651,000 people, Podlaskie and Warmian-Masurian is the most under-represented constituency in the entire European Union.

Nomenclature

The relevant Polish legislation ("The Act of 23 January 2004 on Elections to the European Parliament"[1]) 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[2] and the 2004 European Parliament Election website[3] uses the territorial description when referring to the constituency, not the electoral commission location.
