Elections – Electoral registration. The Divisional Court dismissed the claimants' challenge to the legality under European Union law of s 2 of the European Referendum Act 2015 (s 2), which disenfranchised from the EU referendum British citizens resident abroad last registered to vote in Parliamentary elections in the United Kingdom more than 15 years ago.
