Voting in elections and referendums

If you're not already registered to vote, you've recently moved, or your details have changed, you can register to vote online. British citizens who've lived outside of the UK for less than 15 years may vote in elections and referendums, but have to register as an 'overseas elector' and will need to arrange to vote by post or vote by proxy.
