Decide where you reside

Student Voters: Do I register my current address or my hometown address?

Your residence is the place you consider your home. As a college student, if you consider your campus residence as your home, you may vote at that address. If you consider your parents’ residence or some other address as your home, you must vote from that address. You can only vote from one address in each election. More.
