Letmevote UK is part of Letmevote EU, an independent citizens' group promoting active citizenship in the EU. We promote voter registration and participation of all EU citizens, including mobile EU citizens, who live and work in other EU countries than the one they come from. We believe in a Europe of the people, of engaged citizens, and of active communities.
