The way you register to vote changed in 2014. Everyone is now responsible for registering themselves.
Registering to vote is quick, easy and secure. You’ll need to fill in your name, address, date of birth and a few other details including your National Insurance number, which can be found on your National Insurance card, or in official paperwork such as payslips, or letters about benefits or tax credits.
As a student, you can now register at both your term time address and, if applicable, at the address you live at outside of term time or apply for a postal vote quickly and easily online via the Electoral Commission website.
Once you’ve completed the online form, look out for confirmation from your local electoral registration staff to say you’re registered.
