I dunno, its former population could vote absentee?  I doubt there's 
anything in the rulebooks.

My sister has lived in Canada for more than ten years but votes 
according to her last California address.  I guess she couldn't do that 
if she had emigrated to, say, Massachusetts.

Members of the Peerages of Scotland and Ireland elected a fixed number 
from among them for the House of Lords.  The Scottish representatives 
were elected for each Parliament, but the Irish representatives sat for 
life.  The last election of an Irish representative was in 1919.  The 
last of them died in 1961.

The parliament of the Republic of China was long dominated by 
representatives of the mainland provinces, who kept their seats so long 
as elections there were infeasible.  I wonder when the last of them died.
