e-Petition: Welsh expats voting rights

open quote / dyfyniad agored

Welsh people brought up in Wales who have to leave the country to live elsewhere in the United Kingdom for career reasons often retain family, social, business and other links with their homeland, including in many cases a second home. However, they lose the right to vote in Welsh Assembly elections. This is unjust. Such Welsh expats should be entitled to register to vote in Welsh Assembly and local government elections.

This is especially the case for second home owners, who pay local taxes but have no say in how that money is spent, even though their use of local services is much less than that of other local residents.
