Citizens of Malta GC and Cyprus who are living in the United Kingdom can vote in all elections.
Malta GC and Cyprus are Commonwealth Countries which are also members of the European Union.
Citizens of these countries who are living in the United Kingdom are eligible to vote in all UK elections, by virtue of their Commonwealth Citizenship, provided they have the right to reside here.
As a result of the United Kingdom to leaving the European Union, the residency rights of citizens of Cyprus and Malta to live, work and remain in the United Kingdom have changed. The automatic right to live in the United Kingdom has now gone.
