On June 8th 2017, Britain will be asked to elect a government for the second time in 2 years. In Norwich South and many other places, the student vote will determine who wins. Your vote will matter – and this page will answer your questions about how you can make it matter!




“We were as surprised as many other people by the announcement Theresa May made on Tuesday 18th April about a General Election to be held on the 8th June this year, 3 years ahead of schedule. Whilst we hadn’t planned to deliver a General Election campaign in June of this year we’re working hard to put together a plan in the next few days on how we’ll be ensuring the voice of students is heard here in Norwich."

Amy Rust, UEA SU Campaigns and Democracy Officer

We'll be providing help and support to allow you to consider the options on who you should vote for.

Keep an eye on this page for information on events and activities alongside tonnes of information and guest blogs over the frantic next few weeks in the lead up to General Election 2017! #YourVoteMatters
