Students! Vote Twice in Council Elections … Legally!


Can I vote twice, at home and at uni?

You can’t vote twice in  a UK Parliamentary, Scottish Parliamentary, National Assembly for Wales, European Parliamentary election or European Referendum.


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