I am a college student. Where do I register to vote?
Students who lived in Georgia before moving to another state for school, and who wish to establish or keep their Georgia voting residence (i.e., at their parents’ address), should have no problem doing so unless they have already registered to vote in another state. If you move to a school address in Georgia with the intent of making it your fixed home, you should be able to establish voting residency in Georgia. While Georgia law does discuss making your Georgia home “permanent” court cases have made clear that if you have a present intention to remain at your school address, a “floating intention… to move somewhere else at some future period” will not stop you from establishing residency. Georgia law defines voting residence as domicile.
