I Live Abroad Can I Vote In The UK General Election?
If you are a British citizen, then you are able to vote in some circumstances.
The main circumstances is that you are ble to vote in a general election or a European parliament election (but not say if it were something like a local election).
However, if you have been living overseas for more than 15 years then you lose the right to vote in the UK general election.
Overseas votes and so on are an important source of votes in UK general elections and can be significant enough to swing the way that close seats go.
You get sent a postal vote, or you can also appoint a proxy to vote on your behalf.
For those in the Armed Forces, there is the option to make a service declaration, or simply to vote the standard way.
