Welcome to the Voting Rights blog of www.votes-for-expat-brits.com which aims to draw attention to the denial of voting rights to British expats who have lived outside the UK for more than fifteen years. Scroll down to view results and comments.
If you have not already done so, all we ask of you as a British expat is to add your vote below in favour of voting rights for British expatriates who have lived outside the UK for more than 15 years.
You can click on “View results” above, to see how we are doing and then by clicking on “Comments (xx)” access a thread of comments to which you can also add your own after scrolling down to the “comment ” box.
We believe that the UK should enable and encourage all its expat citizens – not just some of them – to participate fully in the political process in their home country, by giving them unrestricted voting rights in national elections, as in most other advanced democracies (and indeed in many so-called third-world countries).
We hope you enjoyed a visit to our whole site, and we hope too that you decided to express your support in our feedback poll. Wherever you are in the world, especially if you are one of the 5.5 million Britons living abroad, thank you for your visit!
