Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

From Wiki:
British citizens living abroad may vote in UK general elections, referendums and European Parliament elections for up to 15 years after leaving the UK. However, they may only do so if they were registered to vote in the UK while living there.
The problem is the electoral roll is not kept properly up to date in the UK. If no one at your old address subsequently takes you off it, you can potentially stay on it for years, possibly decades. I guess this is why it was possible for people like myself still to receive a vote.
