Please find below a briefing that sets out the Electoral Commission’s work to ensure that British citizens living abroad are registered to vote in advance of the 2015 UK Parliamentary election.
We issued this briefing to all Peers yesterday ahead of today’s short debate secured by Lord Norton of Louth - Increasing the electoral registration of British citizens living abroad. The debate is scheduled for today (Wednesday 26 November) from 3.45pm.
We are also issuing the briefing to all MP’s ahead of the debate for information.
The Commission welcomes the support of MPs in getting British citizens living abroad registered, and our briefing includes some useful examples of what Parliamentarians can do to help encourage registration.
