In the Netherlands they can vote if they live in the Netherlands for 5 years without interruption and legally. Or they are citizens of other countries that permanently live in the Netherlands.
Everyone who lives in a Dutch city has to register at city hall. And if you qualify for participating in elections, you get a voter card sent home, you then go with that card and your identity card to the local voting office and vote for your favorite candidate or your favorite party.
the First Amendment gives everyone “the right to be very critical of a Petty, handicapped mocking, unbalanced, whiny so-called President and criticize him strongly.”

that people critically evaluate news articles before accepting them as true.
Btw: I was shocked to learn a friend of mine from Florida who married a girl he met online from England and moved there to be with her votes in British elections. He's NOT a British citizen but has lived there since 2004. His wife is British and he has two British kids although I'm not sure if family has anything to do with it.
Yeah, he was going on and on about the libdems and the Tories on Facebook (no idea who these people are expect British political parties) and who he was voting for so I asked him does he vote over there. He said yep. What's extra surprising is the UK does NOT allow their own British subjects living in overseas protectorates such as the British Virgin Islands, the Falklands, the sandwich islands, the Cayman Islands, etc. vote in British elections. If they had, I fully believe most of the pre-WWII British Empire would still be intact.
Now that I think about it and for clarity, the UK does not have a national election for Prime Minister like we have for president if I'm not mistaken. Instead, people there vote for their own representative in parliament like we vote for our congressmen. Those members of parliament then elect a prime minister based on party affiliation. So if it were, if you wanted Hillary Clinton to be president, you'd have to vote for a democrat congressman. The British territories are not represented in the British Parlament.

I voted no but I admit I don't know much about this. For example can somebody be here legally for like say 5 years, not be a citizen and paid types of taxes all that time? That could influence my answer and if that situation is possible why are they not a legal citizen yet?? are they trying but it just takes that long
