Can I vote twice – at home and at university?

If your home and university addresses are in two different local authority areas, you can vote in local elections in both areas. This is because they are separate elections.

No one is allowed to vote twice in the same election, even if the votes are in different areas of the country.

It is a criminal offence to vote twice.
