We’ve gotten ourselves into one of the finest universities in the world, definitely the finest in London (uhm uhm UCL!) So if we are super smart, why not do some smart-person stuff like ummm… voting!
Youth turnout in UK general elections has declined significantly in recent decades. More than 60 per cent of 18- to 24-year-olds voted in the 1992 election, compared with an average of about 40 per cent since 2002.

You can register to vote if you are 18 years old or over, and:
Which elections you may be eligible to vote in varies. Remember you can register to vote at both your home and term-time address (though you can only vote once in any election).
You can find some more information about voting as a student here.
