Student Voting Rights

Thanks to Doris Dixon (Raleigh) for passing this along!

Recognizing that student voters, who are generally first-time voters, have significant issues when it comes to voting, the Brennan Center for Justice at the NYU School of Law created this site to help student voters understand their rights.  Click on a state to find out more about residency requirements, absentee voting, ID requirements and more. 

Example: “In Michigan and Tennessee, first-time voters who register by mail are required to vote in person, making absentee voting impossible for students attending distant schools to vote in their hometowns.”
