Your Right to Vote – Electoral Registration

Students are entitled to register from their student accommodation as well as from their home addresses – this means that you are entitled to vote at local elections here in Lincoln in addition to local elections at home. As a resident of the city, you can have your say on how local services in Lincoln are delivered by ensuring that you are registered and participate in the City Council elections. For national elections and referendums you can only cast one vote, so you would need to choose whether you wanted to vote from your home residence or here in Lincoln.

Eligibility

You can register to vote from the age of 16, although you can only vote when you become 18. You qualify to register to vote if you are a UK citizen, a Qualifying Commonwealth citizen resident in the UK, or and an EU citizen resident in the UK. A qualifying Commonwealth citizen is someone who has leave to enter or remain in the UK, or does not require such leave. All countries currently within the Commonwealth can be found at http://thecommonwealth.org/member-countries

To register to vote you will need to provide the following information:

  • Name, date of birth, and full address, including building or apartment number and your room number
  • Contact email and mobile number
