The Government have called a general election for the 12 December this year, and if you want to have your voice heard, you need to be registered to vote.

The general election will shape the direction of the United Kingdom for the next five years, and with uncertainty over Brexit, it’s more important than ever that young people have the chance to get their voice heard.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are registered to vote. As a student you are able to register at your University and your home address, and vote at one of these addresses, so if you are not in Leicester on the 12 December, you’ll still be able to use your vote.

Please ensure that you visit the Government's voter registration site and check you are registered, You will need your National Insurance number and your passport, then don’t forget to have your say in December. Don't forget that if you are from one of the 54 Commonwealth countries then you are eligible to vote, so make sure you're registered.

On the day you can vote at your local polling station or, if you’re likely to be away at the time, you can apply for a postal vote. More information about how you can get involved is available via our Students' Union and the NUS ‘Got 5’ campaign.

Voter Registration Stalls will be on campus at the following times and dates.

  • 10.45am-3.15pm in Percy Gee from 11-22 November
  • 9am-4pm in Percy Gee on 25 and 26 November
  • 5-7pm at Oadby Village Hub from 11-25 November

You must be registered to vote by Tuesday 26 November in order to cast a vote in the 2019 General Election on Thursday 12 December.

Use your vote and make sure that you don’t lose your voice!
