NUS takes #GenerationVote on the road for Voter Registration ‘Drive’!

Friday 12-05-2017 - 17:18

We’re hitting motorways across the country next week to mark the final week for students to register to vote in the General Election.

As part of our ‘#GenerationVote Week of Action’, we’ll be swinging through some key cities where the student vote can have a huge impact on the outcome of this election.

Between Monday 15 and Friday 19 May, we’ll be urging students to put their future in their hands by registering on the spot and asking them to tell us what they want out of the election.

We’ll be doing it in style, too! Look out for us parked up in our vintage VW Camper Van giving out freebies.

Plus - in Sheffield and Bristol we’ll have a special #GenerationVote Ice-Cream Van offering free cones to any student that registers.

The #GenerationVote Drive will be calling at the following locations:

Monday 15 May

  • Sheffield (Sheffield Hallam University and Sheffield College)

Tuesday 16 May

  • Wolverhampton (Wolverhampton University and City of Wolverhampton College)

Wednesday 17 May

  • Birmingham (University of Birmingham, Birmingham City University and Birmingham Met College) and Bristol (University of Bristol, University of West England and City of Bristol College)

Thursday 18 May

  • Norwich (University of East Anglia)

Friday 19 May

  • Brighton (University of Sussex, Brighton University and City College Brighton & Hove)

Other ways to take part in the #GenerationVote Week of Action

Not at one of the places listed above? You can still take part in our week of action by telling everyone how your union is pushing voter registration locally on the #GenerationVote hashtag through the week.

In need of some inspiration? Many unions up and down the country are already running some amazing campaigns – here’s a list ten SUs that are smashing voter registration!

What’s #GenerationVote all about?

Last week, we launched the biggest voter registration drive in our history to ensure students know how they can vote - and importantly, to make sure they're registered and do not miss out.It's vital that students are able to make their voices heard and it only takes five minutes.

Make sure students at your SU are registered by Monday 22 May to vote in the General Election on Thursday 8 June.
