Students are still residents of the state.
By mommy and daddy, they didn't grow up there with the same values..they vote to Fuck it up , then most will leave giggling and high diving each other.
Just like the members of congress setting rules that they themselves don't have to abide by.
I really don't think that was the intentions by the founding fathers.
But hey if you want more moral decay..go for IT.
College students have always been able to vote at school. Putting unreasonable restrictions such as not allowing them to use their photo student ID is not necessary and is un-American.
The logical thinking is, they look at how liberals totally trashed their home states , why would you let them throw a local election that they have no stake in?
They're not "throwing" anything. They're of voting age and legal residents. Get over it.
That is an ulterior motive, vote and run home when you graduate.
Giggling and high fiving all the way..
That's outsiders throwing an election.
They are throwing an election to raise taxes and don't have to pay for it..
But it does work both ways thank God, their parents vote to raise taxes in the blue states, run and take their pensions with them and move to red states.
They are now in heaven paid for by future tax payers of blue states.
A funny America we live in.
First, out of State Students are not considered residents of the State, ask any college student about the hoops you have to jump through and the time it take to qualify for in-state tuition.
Secondly, students who travel normally would not meet the residency requirements for college away from home.
I don't live in North Carolina, but I have had two children go though school. We live in Yorktown, VA - my daughter when to college in Harrisonburg, VA. Her home address was Yorktown even though she lived in the Dorm at college during her Freshman and Sophomore years. We ensure she knew she need to get an absentee ballot before she left. The Dorm is not a permanent address as you can't stay there year round. They kick you out during breaks and over the summer.
Now during her Junior and Senior years, she rented an apartment and so could have registered in the local area if she wanted.
What is the big deal about college students voting absentee like members of the Military. Voted that way for 20 years and never missed an election.
I'm not talking about tuition. I'm talking about being a legal resident of the state for voting purposes. Elections are generally held in November during the school year. There is no reason they should not be able to vote locally using their school ID. If the state has concerns with them voting on local issues, then maybe just give them a ballot for the general. Putting hurdles in place is not the answer.
Not if they maintain a residence in another. At that point they have to choose.
This is more of a concern in local elections, where the issue is why should someone on a 4 year visit get to decide things that impact people who have lived there and will live at a location for decades?
