Are you registered to vote? Have your say in the local elections

Be a part of big decision-making in Portsmouth by registering to vote. If you want to rent, get a mobile contract, or sign up for a credit card, it really helps if you’re on the electoral roll, which is basically a list of everyone who’s registered to vote.

You are able to register to vote at both home and term-time addresses. If your home and University address are in two different local authority areas, you can vote in local elections at both. However, in general elections, you’ll only be able to vote in one.

It only takes five minutes to register to vote. You will need to have your national insurance number to hand.
