Voter Registration Information

As a student, you have a constitutional right to register and vote in the place you consider to be “home” — whether that’s your parents’ house, your apartment, or your residence hall room. But before you make the important decision about where to vote, make sure you know the rules (and sometimes consequences) of registering to vote in that state.
