Overseas electors

Overseas electors

The 15 year limit on voting for British citizens living overseas is to end.

In future, any British citizen, who has been previously registered to vote in the UK or resident in the UK, will be able to apply to register to vote regardless of how long they have lived abroad.

The renewal period for overseas electors will change from 1 to 3 years.

We expect that these changes will take place by May 2024, but the precise dates are yet to be confirmed by government.
