Thanks to Brits in Spain

We´ve received a lot of questions about voting in the UK General Election on 12 December. There are two ways to vote from Spain – by post or by proxy. To vote by post you must apply for your voting pack by 5pm (GMT) on 26 November. To vote by proxy the deadline is 5pm (GMT) on 4 December. It takes time for a postal vote to be delivered, completed and returned, so you should consider voting by proxy, if possible, to ensure your vote is counted. You can only register as an overseas voter for up to 15 years after leaving the UK. For more information visit
