If you’re a citizen of the UK, voting is your democratic right - so don’t miss out on your voice being heard!

Whatever your politics, in order to have your say in general and local elections, you need to be registered to vote.

You are entitled to be registered to vote from your term-time address and your home address (provided that these do not fall within the same area).

Registering to vote could be your first step in influencing the future of your country.

  • Students from the UK, EU, Commonwealth, British Overseas Territories and British Crown Dependencies are all eligible to register to vote.
  • In national elections such as a General Election or a Referendum, you must only vote once (from either address). It is a criminal offence to vote twice in one election.
  • In local elections you may vote from both addresses (providing that they do not fall within the same local authority).

It’s easy to do and can be done online on GOV.UK in just a few minutes. You’ll need to provide your:

  • National insurance number
  • Date of birth
  • Address

Please note, you can register to vote at both your home and term-time addresses, but you can only vote in one location.
