It is likely that a General Election will be held in the not-too-distant future - an election that will take place against a background of national debate on the future of the country and its relationship with the European Union.
We are writing to encourage you to register to vote, exercise your democratic right and contribute your voice to this debate. No matter how you vote or who you vote for, it is important that you have your say on your future.
You can register to vote while completing the first part of the University registration process online. Look out for the prompt to access https://www.studentvoterregistration.ac.uk/index where you will need to enter your UK National Insurance number.
For new full-time students, once you have completed University registration online, you will need to come to the University to register in person as well. To book a slot and for a reminder of what to do, go to the Student Services website.
You are able to vote in a General Election if you are a British, Irish or qualifying Commonwealth citizen resident in the UK, aged 18 or over and registered to vote. While you only vote once, you can be on the Electoral Registers for both your home and term-time addresses - ensure your details are up to date on both. You can find out more information on the government website.
Whatever the outcome of these elections, and however the country’s future relationship with the European Union is determined, the University of Nottingham will remain an institution that welcomes students and staff from every part of the globe.
