A fine. In theory unlimited but in practice not a lot for an average
youngster. Eg bloke who voted twice in 2017 (being registered twice
with different names) was fined £150.
Then there's the fact that many fines are never collected.

You can only vote twice if you are voting in *different* elections, eg Northshire County Council and Southshire County Council. So your vote is only counted once in each election.
You can't vote twice in the same council election (even if it's different wards) or in the same parliamentary election (even if it's different constituencies).
Whether students should have the vote at all in council elections as they don't pay council tax is another matter ...

Different local councils are different elections.
It's possible for an elector to vote twice in person, if they cross the border, but in which case they should at one location ask for and be given only the parliamentary paper, and they can have a local govt paper at both locations.
In practice they will probably get both papers (whether through innocence or malevolent intent) and vote illegally.
Electoral registers are marked up for eg European voters who can vote in, I think, local but not national elections, or is it the other way round.
