EU Referendum voting rights for expats

Stick to the Conservative manifesto pledge to do away with the restriction barring expats from voting in elections, including the EU Referendum, if they have been off the Electoral role for more than 15 years.

Why is this important?

There are estimated to be more than 5 million Britons living abroad; about 2.2 million are believed to have left the UK more than 15 years ago. Unlike most general or local UK elections, the issues at stake in the EU referendum could have an immediate and significant effect on all expatriates.
