You can vote when you’re:
- 18 or over
If you’re a student, you can register at both your university and home address. You can only vote once.
A surge in applications
This year’s election period has seen a massive 2.8 million applications since the election was called. That’s over one million more than the comparable pre-deadline period during the last election, which saw 1.7m applications (according to the Electoral Forms Register.)
The highest number of applications so far was last Friday, which saw over 300,000 individuals register to vote in a single day. This is almost double any other day since the election was called.
Voting is a crucial act of political participation.
