Should you register to vote in DC or your hometown?
The law allows you to register to vote in your college town or your hometown, but NOT both! The decision about registering to vote in your hometown or your college town is legally yours to make.
Some students decide to register to vote in their home state because they have a personal and invested interest in their respective districts and states. Other students choose to register where they attend school because that is where they live most of the year and they want to influence decisions and elect candidates they feel will have a positive impact on their university community.
Regardless of your decision to register in Washington, DC or your home state, the most important thing is that you REGISTER and VOTE.
