Votes for Expat Brits


Welcome to the website for voting rights for ALL expat Brits.
This site aims to draw attention to the scandalous denial of voting rights to British expats who have lived outside the UK for more than fifteen years.
We believe that the UK should enable and encourage all its expat citizens – not just some of them – to participate fully in the political process in their home country, by giving them unrestricted voting rights in national elections, as in most other advanced democracies (and indeed in many so-called third - world countries).
We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and we hope too that you will decide to express your support in our feedback section. Wherever you are in the world, especially if you are one of the 5.5 million Britons living abroad, welcome!
This website is provided by the British Community Committee (BCC) of France, the UK's eighth-largest expat community and the second-largest in a non-English-speaking host country, as a public service to all British expats worldwide.
