Voting as a student
You can't vote at both your home address and your term-time address in a national poll, even if the addresses are in different areas of the country.
Voting in a national poll, for example a UK Parliamentary general election
National polls are considered to be one election, but local elections are considered separate elections.
You can only vote once in a national poll, such as a general election.
This means you must choose if you want to vote at your home address or at your term-time address.
It is a criminal offence to vote twice in one election.
Voting in a local election
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.
