If you have recently changed address you need to register to vote to be on the electoral register to be able to vote in elections and referendums in the UK.
Registering to vote is simple and only takes around five minutes and all you need is your National Insurance number.
If you’re a student it also means that you are able to be registered in two places – in Manchester but also back home. (Although this doesn’t mean you can vote twice in an election – that’s illegal).
If you split your time between two addresses – like a home address and a term address, you can register to vote at both addresses (as long as they’re not both in the same council area.) At local elections you can vote in both places. At national elections, like a general election, you can only vote in one place, but you can choose which place you vote in.
You can register to vote online here.
