In this online briefing we will discuss the Office for Students' (OfS) requirement for English higher education (HE) providers to facilitate the electoral registration of students.
Promoting your students’ civic engagement and encouraging them to take part in democratic processes is an important part of your organisation’s wider role in preparing them for their future lives.
To register students to vote, institutions need to liaise with the electoral registrars where their students live. This can be complex for individual institutions to administer, particularly when multiple electoral registrars are involved.
We have developed a service that makes this as simple as possible for institutions and for your students.
