Who can vote in UK general elections
You can vote in UK general elections once you are on the electoral register and provided that you are also:
* aged 18 or over on polling day
* a British citizen, or a Commonwealth citizen or a citizen of the Irish Republic (living in the UK)
* not legally excluded from voting (for example, if you are in prison)
"IF I LIVE OVERSEAS, CAN I STILL VOTE?
Yes. You can register as an overseas voter if you are a British citizen and have been on a UK electoral register at any time within the past 15 years. To do so, you must be registered in the local authority area where you wish to vote - although it is now too late to do this for this election."
