Let Us Vote is a campaign to allow all UK residents, and all UK citizens living abroad, to vote in general elections and referendums.
In General Elections such as this one and in referendums such as the 2016 EU referendum, UK residents from countries outside of the Commonwealth and Ireland cannot vote. Neither can UK citizens living abroad for more than 15 years. Let’s make this the last election in which they are denied the vote!
All together, up to 10 million people are denied a vote by the current rules: 7 million UK residents and 3 million UK citizens abroad.
Whatever your views on Brexit and party politics, it is fundamentally wrong that so many millions of people whose lives will be deeply affected by developments at Westminster are currently denied a vote. This will be the fourth key national vote in four years in which they will have no say.
We can win – but only if we act. With enough public pressure, we aim to get a majority of candidates in the general election to sign up to our pledge.
