Overseas Electors

British citizens which includes eligible Irish citizens and citizens of the Crown Dependencies (The Channel islands and the Isle of Man) may register as overseas electors if they are now living abroad, providing they are:-

  • a person who was previously registered to vote in the UK within the last 15 years (or in some cases if you were too young to have registered when you left the UK)

You must apply to register as an overseas elector in respect of the address where you were last registered to vote in the UK.

Overseas voters can vote in UK Parliament elections and some referendums. Each referendum has different rules on who can vote in it.

Overseas electors have to renew their registration every year. A reminder will be sent when it's time to renew.

You can vote by post or proxy (where someone you trust votes on your behalf). You will be asked to make this choice when you register or if you are already registered as an overseas elector and do not currently have an absent vote in place please apply now by using the buttons below.

If you would like to know if you are registered please us our online register check form.

If you need any further information please email our electoral registration department.
