Voter registration for UK general election open until Monday
Time is running out for British nationals to register to vote in May’s general election.
Brits living outside the UK are eligible to vote if they have been registered to vote in the UK within the last 15 years.
The next general election is on May 7 and they need to register by April 20 to vote in it. Register here.
Who should I vote for?
For those who are unsure about who to vote for, there are voter advice tools such as Verto, which is primarily aimed at young votes, and Vote for Policies, which will help you find out which party you most agree with.
If you just don’t think any of the candidates are worth your vote, there is a ‘none of the above’ option or you could justt spoil your ballot. These votes are counted and the numbers are published, showing just how many people are dissatisfied with the current options.
The general election is won by a first past the post system, so every vote counts. See the video below for a short explanation on how the election works.
