Any British citizen living overseas can be registered to vote in the UK in general elections, referendums and European elections for 15 years after they were last on the electoral register.
Overseas voters are not allowed to vote in local or mayoral elections.
Register to vote online at GOV.UK
What if I am part of the Armed Forces?
Those in the armed forces, and their spouses or civil partners, can register in either of the following ways:
- If you are based in the UK and unlikely to be posted overseas or to move around often in the next year you can register to vote in the normal way
- If you are likely to be based overseas in the next year you can register as a service voter using a fixed address.
