The deadline for registering to vote at the general election was Tuesday 26 November.
Please watch and share these videos from our Joint General Secretaries on why registering to vote and our ‘Value Education, Vote Education’ campaign is so important
Thanks to the contributions of NEU members to the Union’s political fund we are supporting projects by Hope not Hate and Bite the Ballot to get young people registered to vote.
If you work in a secondary school, sixth form, sixth form college or in further education we encourage you to make use of resources and games designed to get students on the electoral register.
These materials were developed with young people. In each pilot students started by saying that politics was boring and not relevant to them, but by the end of each session they made an informed choice and registered to vote.
Help us put education at the forefront of voters’ minds in this election
