If you have met me in ‘real life’, you know that I grew up in Germany and have lived, worked and studied in the UK since 2005. Now, there will be a referendum on whether the UK should remain in the UK or not. And it turns out that you cannot vote unless you have British citizenship. As I am not the only one in this position, someone has started a petition about this: Let EU citizens living in the UK vote in the EU membership referendum. Have a look and think about it.
If you need more information about the EU and how it works, ask your local Europe Direct Centre.
