General Election 8 June 2017

To vote in the General Election on 8 June, you need to register by 11:59pm on 22 May. You don’t need to register again if you’ve already registered. Our Student Voice Team will be out and about on campus over the next few weeks helping students to register and answering any questions you may have.

Recent changes to voter registration have meant thousands of students are at risk of falling off the electoral register. 

If you have recently moved or started a new course you could easily miss out on your chance to participate in elections.

The General Election on Thursday 8 June falls at a time when many students will be between their term-time and home addresses. Make sure you're registered at both so you don't miss out.

It's vital that students are able to make their voices heard and it only takes five minutes.

Register by Monday 22 May to vote in the General Election on Thursday 8 June.
