    Which means I cannot get my application posted in time. Yes, posted, because northern Ireland is a backwards little place indeed.

    Should I waste my time registering and sending it off late?

    Sadly there is a deadline! You could try sending it off anyway BUT it most likely won't be successful, good luck though

    Register anyway - then you'll be able to vote in future. The more young people actually vote, the more policies will be formulated to appeal to the young, instead of disadvantaging you to help older people (who vote).

    If you can't vote in the EU referendum, ask your older relatives to vote the way you would have voted, on the grounds it's far more important for you than them. And I hope you tell them to vote Remain.

    If it was that important you would have done something about it ages ago. We've had our polling cards for weeks now.

    I was under the impression that I could register online like a normal person. Only realised last night I could not.

    I actually just got back from campus. I had to print out a postal vote form and register in my uni address council. Then filled out the form, scanned and emailed it instead. I couldn't hand it in to the council at home as I'm not there until next week., postal vote to uni council was the easiest and only possible way to register on time.
