UKpol Please share this, important information 

So, with the recent news of the potential upcoming general election, the subject of voting and voter ID is gonna be coming up again

**IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A VALID PHOTO ID YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO VOTE!**

But if you do not have a valid ID there are options!! You can apply for a free voter ID card from gov.uk here

gov.uk/apply-for-photo-id-vote

BUT I don't believe this counts as valid ID for anything else.

OR

I hope the National Union of Students is still doing this but you might also be able to get a Citizen ID card for FREE when you use code "NUS" at checkout. I got my free card last time we had local elections and the code still worked then, otherwise it's £18. If the code no longer works please tell me so I can edit this post as needed.

Please please please don't just not vote, this might be the most important general election that we've seen in a long ass time

Please share so as many people see this as possible

Mint was easy to install and has a very friendly and active support forum

It's super similar to Windows, to the point that if you press the windows button on your keyboard and type "excel" it brings up the open office equivalent

KAFKAESQUE: Students at Emory University built an AI study tool. They pitched it to the university at an entrepreneurship competition. They won "grand prize" and $10,000 to build the tool. They built the tool.

The school's Honor Council suspended them for cheating and for building API support into the tool, which is what they pitched
