Register to vote in the upcoming General Election

Registration open until 22 May

Students are being encouraged to register to vote in the general election, which takes place on Thursday 8 June.

In the 2015 general election voter turnout among the younger age group had been just 43%, compared with 66% overall. With around seven million people not correctly registered to vote in the UK, it is as important as ever to ensure that students are registered so they can have a say in the upcoming election.
