This short report looks more deeply into the question of whether student voters make a difference to UK election results by:

  • taking the 25 constituencies with the highest proportion of full-time students – those where they are thought to make up more than 17.5 per cent of the electorate;
  • considering the results in these seats for the last four general elections, in 2010, 2015, 2017 and 2019; and
  • comparing the results in these seats to the bigger picture.
