Voting as a student

Being registered at both your home address and your term-time addresses doesn't necessarily mean you get two votes.

You will need to choose one address and vote in only that area when you're voting in:

  • UK Parliament elections
  • Senedd elections
  • UK referendums

You can't vote at both your term-time address and your home address at these elections. Voting in more than one location is a criminal offence. 

For other elections you can vote at both your term-time and your home address.

You can choose to vote in either or both areas (as long as the addresses are in different council areas) when you're voting in:

  • Local council elections in Wales
  • Police and Crime commissioner elections 

Make sure you understand the rules for the election you are voting in.
