Students

If you are a student, you may be unsure about where you are registered to vote - at home or at university. Find out about voting as a student.

On this page, you can find information about voting for students.

Register to vote

You can no longer register to vote for the elections in England on Thursday 3 May. The deadline was Tuesday 17 April.

You can still register to vote for other future elections at gov.uk/register-to-vote.


Where should I register to vote?

If you are a student, you may be able to register to vote at both your home and term-time addresses.

If you are not sure if you are already registered contact your local electoral registration office.

Find the contact details for your local electoral registration office.

In Northern Ireland, visit our Register to vote in Northern Ireland page to download a registration form.


Can I vote twice – at home and at university?

If your home and university addresses are in two different local authority areas, you can vote in local elections in both areas.

However, even if you are registered in two areas – at home and at university – you can only vote in one at a general election.

It is a criminal offence to vote twice in a UK general election.
