    I ask because we have a thread where liberals are complaining because out of State college students are being denied the ability to vote in the State they attend college in. One of them even asked how deployed military voted.

    If one is not a resident of a State they are living in then they vote absentee in the district they are a resident of in their HOME State.

    Sounds pretty simple to me, but it's better to have a knee-jerk reaction, feign faux outrage and make a scene. I guess everybody needs a hobby.

    I could be wrong, but I imagine the argument would be something along the lines of considering a person lives most of the year in a given state, ought they not be considered a resident of that state, as opposed to the state from which they came?

    Right; I guess we should conclude you are waiting for the revolution, and meanwhile refrain from voting in sham elections.

    They think they should be able to vote where they go to school and back home (if the need arises).

    Students shouldn't be able to vote. You're a fucking STUDENT for a reason. You are learning.

    Turn 18. Get a job. Pay for rent. Live in the real world. Vote.

    In our own county seat, also the home of Indiana University, students have had the vote since the 60s. There hasn't been a Republican Mayor since then; before, of course, there were.
