Student Voting Rights

There has been some talk of partisan groups badgering voters at the polls on Election Day.  The radio program “Fresh Air” aired a program Wednesday, 10/8/08, on voter intimidation that was very interesting.  I didn’t catch the whole program, so I decided to look into it more via the web.  I came across a link regarding student voting rights that I thought I’d share with you, the students.

 

The site is by the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law.  It is a very informative site regarding the policies and procedures for students who are attending college outside their home state.  If you are not a Florida resident that does not mean you cannot vote!  You can look up the state from which you are from on the map, and the site will generate an easy to follow report on the most common rules that apply to you as a student voter.  Visit the site, know your rights, and don’t let anyone tell you that you cannot vote!

 

For a complete write-up on your state’s regulations, please visit: http://www.brennancenter.org/studentvoting.  If the link does not work, copy and paste the address to your browser’s url bar.
