Myths and Misconceptions about Voting
MYTH - College Students have to vote where their parents live.
A college student may register and vote in the county where they go to college if the student is physically present in the college community and has no intent to return to the student’s former home after graduation. The student does not have to intend to stay in the college community after graduation in order to register to vote there. If a student registers at his or her school address, that registration cancels any previous registration. The college student could also choose to register or remain registered at the address where they lived before college.
