Missouri Student Voter Info

Students who lived in Missouri prior to attending school and who wish to establish or keep their Missouri voting residency (i.e., at their parents’ address) should have no problem doing so unless they have already registered to vote in another state. Students from out of state may choose Missouri as their voting residence. There are no regulations governing residency; however, Missouri law has historically been interpreted as providing that college students may choose to register and vote from their pre-college address or their school address.
