Student Voting: What To Know


The student voting process is not as straightforward as it might seem. There are many different ways that student can cast their vote, and the rules for student voting differ depending on where they live.

What should I know about this?

First, it’s essential to understand that there are two types of student voters: those who are attending school away from home and still living at home. The rules for each group vary depending on the state in which they live.

For students attending school away from home, things are relatively simple. They can vote either by absentee ballot or through early voting. Absentee ballots can be requested through the mail or online. The election authority must receive them before polls close on Election Day. Early voting is available in most states and allows students to cast their votes in person.
