British voters who have been in France for more than 15 years will not be able to head to the ballot box, despite the Conservative party promising to introduce rules covering a 'vote for life'.
Last year a document was published by the government explaining how it intended to scrap the 15 year rule, but it has not moved forward since then and there is little chance of legislation being introduced in time for the June election.
It means that many British people will have now missed out on the 2015 election, the 2016 referendum vote and this year's snap election, all of which have had a a real influence on the day-to-day lives of those living outside the UK in Europe.
Those British people who are eligible to vote in this election can either register, or check they are properly registered, via the official gov.uk website.
