Expat voting in the UK
Did you know that, whilst around 200,000 British expats are resident in France, only a small handful are actually registered to vote in the UK, even though they can?
In fact, providing you have been registered to vote in the UK at any time within the past 15 years, you can continue to vote in UK General Elections and European Parliamentary elections, as long as you register as an overseas voter. (You cannot vote in UK local or mayoral elections, elections to the Scottish Parliament, the National Assembly for Wales or the London Assembly.) You can also vote in France’s own local and European parliamentary elections.
To register to vote from overseas, download an overseas registration form HERE and return it to your electoral registration office for the address where you were last registered to vote in the UK.
Once you are registered, you may choose to vote in person at your local UK polling station, by post or by proxy. (This form does not apply to Northern Ireland. Visit www.eoni.org.uk for more information.)
