Where will you be for the Scottish referendum? Will your vote be with you?
If you want to vote at the referendum then you must be registered to vote by 2 September 2014.
To register to vote in the referendum you must be resident at an address in Scotland and must be either a British, qualifying Commonwealth or European Union citizen.
If you are moving over the summer remember to re-register in your new accommodation in order to be eligible to vote.
Plan ahead where you are going to be on the day of the referendum, the 18th of September and if you are not going to be able to vote in person remember to register to vote by proxy or by postal vote by 5pm on the 3rd of September.
The Students’ Representative Council have registration forms to be completed over the summer and will return them to the Electoral Registration Office on your behalf. Registration forms can be found in the Welcome Point.
If, because of your particular circumstance (such as an Erasmus or international placement), you are unsure whether you would be considered resident and eligible to register at a particular address you should contact your local electoral registration office for advice. You can get their details and more information on voting at: www.aboutmyvote.co.uk.
If, you are currently already registered at your university accommodation the Electoral Registration officer for Glasgow will be carrying out a review of your registration at the end of May 2014, and this may result in you being removed from the Electoral Register at this address. If you are remaining in University accommodation for session 2013/14 you may have to re-register. If you require further information please contact the Glasgow Electoral Registration officer on 0141 284 4444 or firstname.lastname@example.org
