Petition Allow legal British permanent residents to vote in referendums after 5 years.

Not everyone living in Britain who meets the citizenship requirements wants to become a British citizen immediately. Permanent residents who have been living and working in the UK for the past 5 years should be afforded the right to vote in a referendum as it pertains to their future as well.
