If you’re a student, you may be able to register to vote at both your home address and your term-time address.

You can only vote once in a general election. It is a criminal offence to vote twice in one election.

This means you must choose if you want to vote at your home address or at your term-time address.

People with no fixed address

You can still register to vote even if you do not have a fixed address. This may be because you are:

  • a patient in a mental health hospital
  • homeless
  • a merchant seaman
  • part of the gypsy or travelling community
  • living on a boat or other movable residence
  • a person remanded in custody
  • If you are staying at an address for an extended length of time then you can be considered as residing there and can register for that address. This could be a hospital, hostel, prison facility or similar place.
