Update 13 April: Just a reminder that you can vote in the UK general election provided you were registered to vote in the UK in the last 15 years. You have until 20 April, one week’s time, to register to vote.
Original post 16 February: If one thing is certain about UK politics in 2015, it’s that there will be a general election, and British nationals living abroad can vote if they want to up to 15 years after leaving the UK, and providing that they were registered to vote in the UK within that 15 year period. Those who left the UK as children can also be registered to vote, again providing that they left the UK within the last 15 years and were under 18 at the time, and as long as a parent was registered to vote in the UK. Anyone to whom these circumstances apply and who wishes to vote in the forthcoming UK general election can register to do so HERE.
