Students: Make sure you are registered to vote in the local elections

Today (Monday 19 April) is National Voter Registration Day – your last chance to check you are registered for the Leicestershire County Council and the Leicestershire Police and Crime Commissioner elections on 6 May.

In the UK, almost one third of 18-24 year olds are not registered to vote, leaving them left out and overlooked in political decision making. Voting in your local elections helps to ensure your voice is heard.

You can check your registration status by calling the Council on 01509 634546.

If you find that you are not currently registered to vote you can do this online.

Please note that students can be registered to vote at home and term time addresses.

More information on how to vote can be found here.

National Voter Registration Day (NVRD) is an initiative re-established by My Life My Say and ShoutOut UK to encourage participation in local, regional and national elections.
