  • British citizens who have move to Gibraltar in the last 15 years can register as overseas voters

British citizens who moved from the UK to Gibraltar in the past 15 years will be able to vote in the British general election on 12 December.

They can register to vote in the UK as an overseas voter as long as they are a British or eligible Irish citizen and were registered to vote in the UK within the previous 15 years.

In some cases, it may be possible for someone to vote if they were too young to have registered when they left the UK.

Those who wish to vote in England, Scotland or Wales, should register to vote in the normal way.

Anyone who wishes to vote in Northern Ireland needs to register by post. Those serving with the Armed Forces should register to vote using the Armed Forces Registration Service.
