Are you ready to vote?
It’s difficult to predict what will happen with Brexit, but one thing is certain: if you are not registered to vote, your voice will not be heard.
Whether it’s a People’s Vote on Brexit or a General Election, you need to make sure you are registered or you will not be able to vote.
Residents of the United Kingdom who were citizens of other EU countries were not allowed to vote in the 2016 referendum unless they were citizens (or were also citizens) of the Republic of Ireland, of Malta, or of the Republic of Cyprus and only those 18 or over were allowed to vote. We do not know who will be able to vote next time.
In Brent, 55,000 residents are EU nationals from outside the EU. That is one in six of Brent 335,000 residents.
These residents must also consider whether they need to apply for Settled Status if we do leave the EU. If they don’t apply or are refused, they may have to leave the UK.
