Voter feedback

Colin Blackwell in the latest comment to this blog has informed us that the Cabinet Office has asked for feedback on its Bill to change how Voter Registration is done. Basically this is the best immediate shot we have to abolish the 15 year rule. As many British Expatriates as possible need to email electoralregistration@cabinet-office.gsi.gov.uk THIS WEEK i.e. by Oct 14th urging that the 15 year rule is dropped in this legislation. More information at http://www.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/resource-library/individual-electoral-registration-draft-bill .

The under current is that a consensus is building within the coalition to extend the cut off period back to 20 years rather than 15 years as opposed to abolishing it completely – so the more responses they get this week the better.
