In or out? Make sure you can vote!

Whatever side of the European Union debate you sit on, it’s important that you make sure you are registered to vote by 7 June.

Remember, if you have moved since you last voted or will change address by 23 June you should register again. If you are unsure if you’ll be at your home or term-time address, you can register at both, but can only vote once in the referendum.

If you are on holiday, unsure where you will be or can’t get to your polling station on 23 June, you can apply for a postal vote by 5pm on 8 June or apply for a proxy vote by 5pm on 15 June.

Still not sure which way to vote? Watch back the university’s EU debate that was hosted on 13 June to help you make up your mind.
