Millions of EU/EEA/Swiss citizens in the UK and British citizens abroad have no vote in the 2019 General Election. Professor Tanja Bueltmann came up with a new initiative to help them be heard.


First published in December 2019.


Millions of EU/EEA/Swiss citizens in the UK and British citizens abroad have no vote in the 2019 General Election even though its outcome impacts them directly and profoundly.

We need voters to help give them a voice.

So, today, I am launching #VoteForMeToo. Check it out here!

The #VoteForMeToo campaign is designed to help voters understand the impact the General Election has on millions of disenfranchised people.

Watch their stories here and – if you are one of them too – add your own via #VoteForMeToo. We need voters to hear your voices.

And we need voters to listen to them and remember, as they choose who to vote for, that this election is the election of our lifetime for the millions of disenfranchised too.

So please: help them be heard. Go vote, and think of them and their rights too.

If you are an EU/EEA/Swiss citizen in the UK or a British citizen abroad who cannot vote anymore, and would like to add you voice to this campaign, please share your stories online using #VoteForMeToo.

Videos are particularly welcome as well, and I would be delighted to add them to the campaign website. Please get in touch if you are interested.

Watch some of them now:
