Britons support EU citizens’ electoral rights

According to new research by the ECREP electoral psychology initiative at the London School of Economics and Political Science, undertaken in partnership with Opinium, British citizens support maintaining or increasing the electoral rights of EU citizens living in the UK.

Half (49%) of Britons support giving EU citizens who live in the UK the right to vote in general elections in addition to their current right to vote in local elections.

An additional 25 per cent support maintaining the right of EU citizens to vote in local elections only. Only ten per cent of those surveyed support the government’s position of ending EU citizens’ current rights to vote in local elections
