Thursday 6th February was National Voter Registration Day. For many of our students May 2015 will be the first time that they can vote, so to encourage them to register, Emily Watts and Jo Cox from the Cambridge City Council Electoral Services Department visited the College to sign up eligible students.
BBC Radio Cambridgeshire interviewed two of our students with contrasting views about whether they were planning to vote. This was broadcast on Drivetime.
To inspire students further, Lucy Frazer, Conservative candidate for South East Cambridgeshire (above, second left), spoke to two Politics classes about how and why she decided to stand for Parliament. She then visited the Student Centre for an open session with students.
As the General Election approaches, the College will be holding a mock election.
