The Student Vote

Originally Published 02 October 2003

What are you giving up to come to university?

When you come to university, it is important that you don’t leave your right to vote at home.

If you’re a student living away from home, you can register to vote at more than one address. So, you can register at home and at your term-time address, whether this is in halls or off-campus accommodation. This means that you can vote in two sets of local elections (which will be happening on June 10 2004), and make your mark on both of the communities to which you belong. However, with local elections taking place on the same day, it is important that you register for a postal vote for at least one of your two communities.

With almost 18,000 students at the University of Warwick, and at least 12,500 of these living in nearby Coventry and Warwickshire, Warwick students form a large demographic in the local communities. Your vote can make a difference in local elections. After all, we’re all affected by the same issues.
