Today is the deadline to register to vote in the General Election. NUS Wales is calling on students and young people across Wales to make sure that they have a voice on 7 May. Students in Wales have the ability to swing seats, to genuinely have an impact on the result of the election, and to ensure that the student voice in Wales is properly represented.

Registering to vote on-line is simple. It takes less than five minutes to do and it ensures that you have can have your say on 7 May. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not essential that you know your national insurance number in order to register. Just go to https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote to register now.

NUS Wales President Beth Button said:

‘People aged 16-24 today face more serious challenges than generations gone by, but they are the group of people least likely to vote. Without a challenging and political voice, governments can get away with ignoring the issues that are most important to students. That has to change. Register to vote today and turn out to vote on 7 Mai.’

As the General Election approaches, NUS has been working hard. We will be hosting ‘Question the Candidates’ in Ceredigion this Wednesday, and in Arfon next Wednesday. These are Twitter hustings including the six main candidates. Watch this space for further information.

As well as this, NUS UK has been leading the Generation Vote campaign which includes #RegAFriend.

Join the movement today.
