(.gov.uk) Voting if you live abroad (Expats)

Post by siteadmin » Tue Dec 10, 2019 11:54 am

For those of us that are not already registered as an overseas voter, then unfortunately ist too late to vote in the 2019 General Election thats coming up this Thursday 12th December.

Those of us who are expats, here's quick guide how to vote from oversees as a UK citizen, for the next "UK Parliament and European Parliament elections" vote by post or proxy, if you’re eligible. THe forms to be filled incan either be emailed or posted your overseas address whhenyou register online.

Rule of thumb, taken from https://www.gov.uk/voting-when-abroad
  • You can register as over seas voter if its has not been no more than 15 years since leaving the UK.
    you’re a British or eligible Irish citizen
See above link from .gov.uk for links to register to vote if you live in England, Scotland or Wales or for those in Northern Ireland using paper form.
