We're sure you've been following the news lately and are aware that there may be another General Election on the horizon. That is why we are launching #YOURVOICEMATTERS.
In order to vote in elections and referendums, you need to be on the electoral register. Students can tend to be caught out by this if they've moved to a new city, but we're here for you!
If you have not yet registered, you can do so by heading to the gov.uk website. it's quick and easy and once you've done it, you'll be eligible to vote in any upcoming elections with no issues.
You may need your National Insurance Number and your Passport if you are a British citizen living abroad.
DID YOU KNOW - You can register to vote at both your home and term-time addresses, plus if they're in two different local authority areas, you'll be able to vote in local elections at both. However, if there is a general election, you'll only be able to vote in one.
Not sure if you're already registered? Get in touch with your local authority. You can enter your postcode on the gov.uk website to find your local electoral registration office and you can contact them directly.
Voting is an important responsibility given to all citizens to help shape the society they want to live in, but you need to make sure you're on the electoral register to exercise your right to vote. Don't be silenced, #YOURVOICEMATTERS.
