I am a college student. Where do I register to vote?
Students who lived in Minnesota prior to attending school and who wish to establish or keep their Minnesota voting residency (i.e., at their parents’ address), should have no problem doing so unless they have already registered to vote in another state. Minnesota students who consider their school address their home are able to establish voting residency at that address.
