21 October 2015 'Who Can Vote? Does the UK Franchise Influence the Outcomes of Referendums and General Elections? Dr Caroline Morris, Queen Mary University of London, and Dr Alan Renwick, Constitution Unit, University College London. The issue of the franchise - who can vote - became something of an issue before the referendum on independence for Scotland in September 2014 and remains so. Some of the issues include questions about the voting age, votes for (some) prisoners, votes for non-UK citizens living in the UK, votes for UK citizens living outside the UK and electoral registration arrangements. The workshop explores matters further in the context of future referendums and general elections. They also look at what other countries do by way of comparison.
