More than half (52%) of British people say that EU citizens who live and work in the UK should not be allowed to vote in UK General Elections, according to our research.

A recent BMG poll found that those aged 75 and older were most against the idea, with seven in ten (70%) rejecting it.

Support for EU citizens being allowed to cast their vote was highest among 18-34 year-olds, with four in ten (42%) feeling this way.

Three-quarters (75%) of those who voted to leave the EU in last year’s referendum were opposed to EU citizens in the UK having the right to vote in a UK General Election, while almost half (47%) of those who voted to Remain say that they should be afforded the right to do so.

Fieldwork dates, methodology and a full breakdown of these results can be found here.
