I am a college student. Where do I register to vote?
Students who lived in Texas before moving elsewhere to attend school, and who wish to establish or keep their Texas voting residency (i.e., at their parents’ Texas address), should have no problem doing so unless they have already registered to vote in another state. Students attending school in Texas should be able to register and vote at their school address, because Texas law is clear that students who consider their school address their current fixed residence are entitled to vote there, regardless of their future plans. Still, students have historically encountered difficulties in registering in certain counties.
