Exclamation British citizens - register to vote

The law recently changed in the UK to allow British citizens living overseas to vote. This right was previously lost after fifteen years aboard :

With a UK General Election coming up, now is a good time to register and request your postal vote.

Thank you! I was always more than a little peeved that my rights to vote in UK elections were withdrawn. I've now registered,

I was more than peeved I wasn't allowed to vote in the Referendum. With the numbers of people living all over Europe I suspect it might have been even closer than 52-48.

For those not intending to vote because of disinterest or lack of appealing choice, please still register. It only takes a moment.

A potential voter who is not registered is a voice ignored but a registered voter choosing not to vote is a choice. Don't let others claim your silent agreement.

The UK Government affects pensions, investments, and international policies – all of which can directly affect those living aboard.
