Reminder: register to vote by 18 June



There's just over a week left to register to vote! The registration deadline for the upcoming general election is 18 June 2024. You must be registered to vote by this date to cast your vote on Thursday 4 July.

Did you know students make up 10% of the voting population? JMSU has compiled a useful webpage about voting in the general election with all the information you need, including what you need to vote, why you should vote, and how students can vote.

Three simple steps for all students voting in the 2024 General Election

  1. Register to vote: students are allowed to register to vote at more than one address if they consider both places to be a permanent home. Since students often split their time between their term-time and home addresses, it's important to be registered at both. However, it is illegal to vote in two places, so you must choose which address to vote at. Make sure you are registered by 11:59 pm on Tuesday 18 June.
  2. Make sure you have valid photo ID: all students need a valid photo ID to vote. This can include a passport or driving license. If you don't have a photo ID, you can get one for free from NUS. Order this as soon as possible since ID cards can take up to 21 days to be delivered.
  3. Turn up and vote: voting day is 4 July, and you can vote at your nearest polling station. You can also find out how to vote by post or have someone vote by proxy (on your behalf).

For further details on how to register to vote, which forms of photo ID are accepted, or key dates for postal voting, visit the JMSU General Election page.
