Introducing individual electoral registration into Britain was long predicted to have had an impact on student registration. Previously, they were automatically enrolled by their universities; now they are not, and many have fallen off the electoral roll as a result. But an amendment passed in the Lords this week would let them register at the same time as they enrolled at university.

With  Lord Chris Rennard and Bite the Ballot’s Josh Dell, we blog about this on the Democratic Audit.
