The 2022 Elections Act has enfranchised British citizens living abroad, opening up exciting new opportunities for the party.
Launched in Autumn 2017, Lib Dems Abroad currently encompasses some 1,000 Liberal Democrat members and 1,300 Liberal Democrat supporters living outside the UK.
It is comprised of three local parties:
To identify and represent the interests of an estimated 5.5 million British citizens - around 8% of all British citizens – who live abroad
To campaign for their votes and fund-raise for the Liberal Democrat Party during UK General Elections
To grow the organisation by recruiting and supporting our members
The Liberal Democrats support the introduction of overseas constituencies so the voices and needs of British citizens abroad can be better taken account of.
Lib Dems Abroad is currently situated within the party’s internal structures as a subcommittee of the Federal International Relations Committee.
Liberal Democrat supporters living abroad can join the party using the general registration page. You will then be allocated the appropriate local party abroad based on your address (please register with your address abroad). The local party executive will then contact you to introduce themselves and their activities. We warmly welcome you!
