Vote twice on May 5th

Writing about web page

No this isn't an entry encoraging you to commit fraud…

Infact if you live in two different places (as many students do), you may be able to vote twice in Local elections, if your two addresses are in two different Council areas.

For example if your home address is in Staffordshire and you live in Warwickshire whist at Uni you can vote in both elections on May 5th, povided you are on both electoral registers.

Of course it may be inconvienient for you to be in two places at once, you you may want to apply for a postal vote for your home address at

Local elections are being held for County Councils only, so they may not be being held where you live. They are being held in Warwickshire (Leamington, Kenilworth, plus Hurst, Cryfield, Redfern, Lakeside, Heronbank, and any other residences on that side of Gibbet Hill Road). There are no local elections in Coventry and the rest of campus this time.

In the event of a general election you are only allowed to vote once, regardless of how many times you are registered (although it is up to you where to vote).
