How to Vote in the State Where Your School Is Located
You can be a resident of two states, but you can only vote in one. So if you're a college student who has a permanent address in one state and lives in another to attend school, you can choose where you want to cast your ballot. You'll need to check with your home state or the state where your school is located for more details on registration requirements, how to register, and, of course, how to vote.
As long as you've registered to vote in your "new" state, you should get voter materials in the mail that will explain the issues, have candidate statements, and say where your local polling place is located. You might even be able to vote on your campus. If not, there's a pretty good chance that many students at your school will need to get to the neighborhood polling place on Election Day.
Check with your student activities or student life office to see if it is running shuttles or if there are any carpooling initiatives involved for reaching the polling place. If you don't have transportation to your local polling place or won't be able to vote on Election Day for some other reason, check if you can vote by mail.
