This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government
Petition All British citizens shall have the right to vote in national referendums.
All British citizens must have the right to participate in referendums that are national in extent. The rule that bars citizens from voting in constituency elections if they have lived outside the country for more than 15 years shall not apply to voting in national referendums.
All British citizens are affected by the outcome of national referendums; therefore, all British citizens must have the right to vote in said referendums, no matter where in the world they live and no matter how long they have lived outside the country. No national referendum shall be conducted until this matter is resolved and all loyal subjects are granted this fundamental democratic right.
