    • Can I vote twice, both at home and at university?

      If your home and university addresses are in two different local authority areas, you can legally vote in local elections in both.

      However, even if you are registered in two areas, at home and at university, you can only vote in one at a General Election.

      It is a criminal offence to vote twice in a UK General Election.
