The ability for students to swing the general election has been a hot topic in the press - as a student collective you all have the power to decide who will be running our country for the future.

:party::party:

To help power the student vote YOU can make a huge difference by supporting the youth vote campaign. As part of this TSR is putting together some visuals of the community in a photo montage to show that students will stand united!

:grouphugs:


If you're interested in supporting the student vote and being part of this project all you have to do is send us in a photo of yourself to become part of your TSR student community montage!

:tsr:

It will take at least 50 applicants for us to put together this visual so if you are interested in becoming a face for student voting please send your photo in to us, specifications include:

- Portrait or square
- As high res as possible
- Headshot/passport style photo – full head is shown in pic
- Straightforward on face (so full face in view, not sideways or obstructed)
- Serious/meaningful expression are ideal (smiling is fine just not sticking out tongues etc.)
- Any file type (jpg, png, gif etc)



To submit a photo please post a thread with your picture attached in our dedicated General election photo submissions forum 2015.
http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=1151

Here some examples of the type of thing we are looking for...

No Im not really keen - you get a load of undergraduates who live in an area for approx 18 months out of 3 years potentially unseating a MP who's been selected by the people who live in that constituency permanently.

Most MPs only live in their constituency as a matter of form, they really live in London and 'keep a house' in the seat, or have two homes in London if they are a London MP. (See: Expenses, overclaiming, scandal of.)

The idea of the 'local MP' is mainly mythical, although they all try to play it hard.

They tend to represent the interests of students and young people generally though, which are a permanent feature and just as important.

Besides - most people vote on national issues rather than local ones let's face it.

That is a very good point! I'm not sure why I had 4 years stuck in my head as the last one was five years ago so I looked it up and it is actually has more flex than expected:

Parliament has to be elected every five years at a maximum though elections often take place more frequently, most usually every four years, such as 1979, 1983 and 1987, or 1997, 2001 and 2005.

I was under the impression that the government changed that to a compulsory 5 year term to stop people calling elections when it's more favourable for their party to be re-elected?

Cool, I didn't know about this. I did realise that the reason I was thinking of 4 year terms is because I just finished watching The Wire and they go on about it a lot!
