Your groping at straws here and displaying a contempt for democracy. Yes some 18M people don't have the right to vote, mostly because their deemed too young to vote. That occurs just about everything where voting is allowed, including in the rest of the EU. Ditto quite a number of voters didn't use their right to do so, which is their choice. That's again the way democracy works and given that just about everybody was expecting remain to win its probably more likely that those were disatisfied leave voters who felt there was no point to their trying. Hence claiming that most people didn't vote for Brexit is as relevant as claiming that most people didn't vote to stay.
