European elections: Government faces legal challenge amid fears millions of EU citizens could lose right to vote

Under current rules EU citizens must register to vote & also sign a special form to state that they are not also voting in any other EU country known as a ”UC1” by 7 May 2019.

But chaos around the date of UK departure from the EU means the form was only sent to 2 million European nationals on the electoral register a few weeks before the deadline instead of the usual four month period.

Roger Castle Sec General of New Europeans said: ”Because of the very tight timetable, we would urge the Government to allow those EU citizens, on the electoral roll, who miss the 7 May deadline, to fill in the required UC1 declaration form when they arrive at the polling station on the 23 May.”
