Durham students can now automatically register to vote when enrolling, starting from the next academic year (2020/21). This will also be true of students re-enrolling from 1st June.
With this tool, students will be able to choose on enrolment whether they want to register without having to visit the government’s website separately.
This news was announced by SU President Kate McIntosh on Wednesday 11th March at 11:32am via Twitter.
“It’s happening!” her tweet promised. She also announced, “This morning I met with Durham County Council and the University to talk through the details!”
This follows the SU’s campaign last November which encouraged students to register to vote for the General Election.
