European elections: voting rights for British citizens

I am a British national residing in Luxembourg. Will I be entitled to participate in the European elections on 26 May 2019?

No.

The United Kingdom is meant to leave the EU on 29th March 2019. After this date, British nationals will no longer fulfil the nationality requirement of the electoral law of 18th February 2003 (as amended), namely being a national of an EU Member state. Thus, they will lose their voting right in the European elections.

I am a British national residing in Luxembourg and I have the nationality of another EU Member State (non-UK). Will I be entitled to participate in the European elections on 26th May 2019?

Yes.

Under the electoral law of 18th February 2003 (as amended), nationals of EU Member States residing in Luxembourg may participate in the European elections either in their country of origin or in Luxembourg.

However, if you wish to participate in the European elections in Luxembourg you must register on the electoral roll by 5 p.m. on 28th February 2019. Further information on registration procedures are available here.

Please note that if you were already registered on the electoral roll in Luxembourg for the previous European elections, your registration on the electoral roll is maintained automatically.
