Did you know there could be a General Election this academic year?
When students and young people turn up at elections, our voice is so powerful. We also have A LOT to vote for at the next General Election - we're struggling with the cost of living, with our housing, and with our mental health.
But the requirement to show voter ID in General Elections represents a new barrier to students and young people voting, so we want you to show up and be part of the biggest youth and student voter registration campaign EVER!
The first and most important thing you can do is register to vote. It takes 5 minutes, and all you need is your address and National Insurance Number.
5 Things to Know about Registering to Vote
1. You can Register to Vote from age 16 (or 14 if you live in Wales or Scotland), but you can only vote in a General Election if you're 18 or over on polling day
2. You can Register to Vote if you are a British, Commonwealth, Irish or EU Citizen
3. You have to Register to Vote every time you change address
