Voting Hurdles Often Keep College Students Away From the Ballot Box

Excerpt: 

[H]urdles including proof of residency, absentee ballot use and voter identification...tend to disproportionately affect college students because so many students travel out of state for college. ...

Nine states never accept student IDs, and 21 others only accept them if they meet certain criteria such as an address or expiration date.

Why is this a problem? One University of Michigan study indicated that the number of people getting a driver's license — the most common form of accepted ID at the polls — has declined. In fact, many in younger generations have said they never plan on getting a license. They're too busy. It's too expensive to own a car. They can catch a ride from others, according to another University of Michigan study.

Voting as a Student

As a student, you have a constitutional right to register and vote in the place you truly consider to be “home” — whether that’s your parents’ house, your apartment, or your dorm room. But before you make the important decision about where to vote, make sure you know the voting rules (and sometimes consequences) of registering to vote in that state.
