Remove the 15 year rule on British expats voting in UK General Elections

Petition Details

Her Majesty’s Government promised before the 2016 referendum on leaving or remaining in the EU that the rights of British expatriates who have lived outside of the United Kingdom for more than 15 years to vote in General Elections would be reinstated.

Additional Information

This promise of the reinstatement of the right to vote must be made good.
