Jisc Helps Students in the U.K. Register to Vote

Jisc shared that its college and university student voter registration service has reached 1,000-plus sign-ups. The press release notes, “As the government gears up for a general election, it is hoped that the student voter registration service will help to increase democratic engagement from a voting cohort that is under-represented in elections.”

Once it gets a student’s consent, the service collects information from the university, including the student’s full name and date of birth, “and automatically transfers it to the relevant, participating electoral registrars at local authorities, reducing the effort and expense it would take for universities and colleges to work with multiple electoral registrars across the UK.”

Seventeen universities have signed up for the service so far.

For more information, read the press release.
