Special arrangements for registering to vote

Register to vote if you're a student or you have two addresses

If you split your time between two addresses, for example if you’re a student and have a home address and a term time address, you can register to vote at both addresses, as long as they're not both in the same local authority area.

At local elections, you can vote in both places.

At national elections, like a parliamentary general election or European election, you can only vote in one place but you can choose which place you vote in.

Voting in more than one place at national elections is a criminal offence.
