A General Election will be held on Thursday 12 December - 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 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 may only vote once, you can be on the Electoral Registers for both your home and term-time addresses, please ensure your details are up to date on both, or you can request a postal ballot.
You can find out more information and register using your National Insurance Number via the Student Services website.
The deadline to register to vote is midnight Tuesday 26 November.
Whatever the outcome of the General Election, 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.
