EU Referendum – British Residents – Your Vote Matters

Infographics 1200 x 630 pixels hiI attended a meeting this morning in Adeje where a group of island bloggers were invited to meet Helen Keating the British Vice Consul and William Middleton, the British Consular Regional Director for the South of Europe (for the nosy lot like me that covers Portugal to Turkey and all points in between).

The purpose was to discuss several items, the main being the EU Referendum and the keen interest in what the outcome might mean for British nationals overseas. Naturally, nobody knows what will happen, and anyone speculating at this stage might as well look into a crystal ball, however, what did come across was that the interests of British nationals would remain paramount.

With more than a quarter of a million Brits live in Spain, a large majority are eligible to vote, but time is running out – the deadline is 16 May.

Nothing could be easier, simply visit www.gov.uk/register-to-vote with your passport, National Insurance number, and last UK postcode. The process takes just 5 minutes and ballot papers will be sent out from 23 May in time for them to arrive and for you to send them back.

Whether you feel the UK should remain in or leave the EU,

Make sure you have your say.
