Make your voice heard - Register to vote!

A message from Acting President Nicci Simpson

The deadline for registering to vote in Great Britain and Northern Ireland is coming up quickly. As part-time students and distance learners, it’s important that we make our voices heard to those standing in the General Election on June 8. Click on the link below for more information on how to register. The deadline is Monday, 22 May.

The Electoral Commission estimates that approximately 15% of people who are eligible to vote are not registered, approximately 7 million people.
