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.

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 England, Scotland or Wales, you can register to vote online at gov.uk/register-to-vote.

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 uni?

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

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

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