    The students are nit filing taxes. Their parents are.

    If the is residing at a different residence, he's no longer a dependent. That's just life in the real world.

    Just because you can be claimed as a dependent does not absolve a student from filing a tax return if he/she earns income while in school. Trust me, I know...

    Wrong. It is perfectly legal to claim a college student as a dependent, and still will be, as long as that student does not vote in the district they reside in.

    Nothing about the bill involves the students income.

    If they register to vote in a different precint than their parents, then they're no longer living under their parent's roof.

    If the student only lives in a dorm, then this bill is stupid because their permanent address is most likely their parents address. Just because I lived in a dorm for 7 months does not make that my permanent address. If the students lives off question, then that is a different story.

    If you do not register, but live in the same place as in your example, you are still a dependent. The bill does not make a distinction on where people live.

    So they should be voting where their parents are. If you file your own taxes, you can vote in your own residency. Where you vote should be where your taxes are filed under.

    Why should you vote any place other than your residence? That makes zero sense.
