Sparsholt College have signed up on The Electoral Commission Website – we are doing all we can to alert our students to some changes to the voting system. Students now all need to sign up individually for voter registration rather than relying on a ‘head of the household’ to do this for them.
The changes particularly affect our residents who we previously were able to register as a whole group – as the aforementioned ‘head of the household’. Unfortunately, we can no longer do this.
The Electoral Commission are working with colleges and universities to actively encourage young people to recognise the need to sign up to vote and for them to do so before 20th April.
Young people can find out more about the power of their vote by visiting the Bite The Ballot website.
