As you may be aware, there is a good chance that there will be a UK Parliamentary election soon.
Students can register to vote with respect of both their term-time AND their home address, however, can only vote once at a particular election.
If you wish to register at your term-time address, in case an election is called in the next couple of months, you can register online – it only takes 5 minutes.
In order to vote in a UK Parliamentary election you must be a British, Irish or qualifying Commonwealth citizen over the age of 18.
