#GenerationVote: The future is in your hands

2016 is another big year for democracy, with national elections in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, mayoral elections in England, and the strong possibility of an EU referendum.

We have produced various resources to help students’ unions to conduct voter registration drives and ensure that the student voice is too powerful to be ignored.

Our downloadable #GenerationVote guide is designed to help students’ unions plan voter registration drives during National Voter Registration Week (2-8 February) and beyond. It includes all the facts and jargon you need to know about the voter registration process, and lots of tried and tested ideas for how to conduct engaging and effective registration drives for your students.

You can share our #GenerationVote twibbon to spread the message on social media and use either of our graphics to promote the campaign on your website.

We also have limited extra stock of #GenerationVote T-shirts, stickers, badges and balloons to help you set up stalls and conduct other voter registration activities on your campuses. If you’d like more please contact campaigns@nus.org.uk.

We’d also love to hear about and see pics of your voter reg drives so please keep in touch and email them to campaigns@nus.org.uk tweet @nusuk / @nusconnect with #GenerationVote.

Happy registering!
