Students must register to vote by 7 June to make their voice heard

Professor Paul Boyle, President and Vice-Chancellor of our University, has written an article about the importance of voting in the EU referendum and how it is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for young people to influence their futures.

Registration for students must be done by 7 June and voting can be done online here.

In the article he said: "The EU referendum on 23 June is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for young people to influence their futures.  Among them are two million students eligible to vote – but will they be able to?

"Unless they act now, students who are not registered to vote where they will be living on 23 June will miss out. A recent poll found that half of university students will no longer be at their term-time addresses on polling day.

"Rescuing the vote is easy – students can either re-register at the address where they will be on polling day, register at both home and university, apply to vote by post, or arrange a proxy vote for someone else to vote on their behalf.  But it must be done by 7 June."
