Universities General Election campaign to get students to vote

First published in News

TWO Hampshire universities have joined forces to launch a campaign to encourage students to get voting in the next General Election.

The University of Southampton and Solent University have teamed up with the Bite the Ballot organisation in a bid to get more students to polling stations.

It comes as figures show that in the 2010 General Election, little more than half of all 18- to 24-year-olds were registered to vote, and just 44 per cent voted.
