Are you at University?

If you are and you are living away from home then you have two options:

  1. You can apply for a postal vote which means your polling card will be sent to your term-time address.  To apply for a postal vote you need to fill in a Postal Application Form. Click the button below to go to our Application and Waiver webpage:

    Application and Waiver Forms


2. You can register with the local authority that your university falls under.

This means that you will be on the Electoral Register for two areas but you can only vote once in General, European, Scottish and National Assembly for Wales elections!

You can vote in local government elections at home and at your term-time address – as long as they are not in the same local government area.

To register with a local authority complete the online registration form:

*make sure you put your term time address as your main address*

Register Online

They will then send you a polling card to your term time address so you can vote.

If you are at University but still living at home then you can register and vote as normal giving your home address.
