    British citizens who have been living overseas for longer than 15 years are now eligible to vote in the UK elections. This change has been made after a long court battle which challenged the 15-year voting limit.

    The amendment will affect about 3.5 million British expats who are living overseas for work or retirement but still pay taxes in the UK.
