Student Voting

As a student, you have a constitutional right to register and vote in the place you truly consider to be “home” — whether that’s your parents’ house, your apartment, or your dorm 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.

The Brennan Center created a guide to help students understand the different state laws and rules about how to register and vote. It explains the basic residency, registration, identification, and absentee voting requirements for voters in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
