She was elected to the European Parliament in 2004, and re-elected in 2009, coming in third behind Labour and Conservative candidates with 17% of the vote, the highest of any Liberal Democrat candidate.[1][2][3]

Hall was born in Swinton, Lancashire and attended Worsley Wardley Grammar School and Eccles College. She went on to study at St Hugh's College, Oxford and graduated with a degree in Modern Languages. She worked part time as a teacher after moving to Northumberland where she campaigned against nuclear power in the early 1990s. [1]

Hall began working as a political officer for the Liberal Democrats in 1997 and parliamentary researcher two years later. Hall was a Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe polling station supervisor in Kosovo in 2001 following the 1999 NATO bombing of Yugoslavia.[1]
