    You aren't really a full time resident at college if you're being claimed as a dependent elsewhere.

    What does voting have to do with whether you are a dependent?

    Legal residence has nothing to do with dependent status.

    Lmao.......... Maybe you should educate yourself alittle. Already, when students fill out FASFA, if they are a dependent they have to fill out their parent's information, including home address. There is no reason why voting should be any different.

    Ummm...that has nothing to do with anything. Your residence in the eyes of the law is where you live. Here, let me help you educate yourself: North Carolina General Statutes 163-57 Residence defined for registration and voting - Legal Research

    So long as a student intends to make the student's home in the community where the student is physically present for the purpose of attending school while the student is attending school and has no intent to return to the student's former home after graduation, the student may claim the college community as the student's domicile. The student need not also intend to stay in the college community beyond graduation in order to establish domicile there. This subdivision is intended to codify the case law.
    So, by Noerth Carolina law(you know, what we are talking about here), dependency states is not a factor in determining residency. You are wrong.

    Hint: I tend to make it a point to research what I talk about. Simple things like looking up laws is something I do alot. Telling me to educate myself when you have clearly done less is going to end in embarrassment, as it did here.

    Right. kids going to college saves them so much money over paying for 3 squares a day when they are home.
    I wonder about your thought process sometines...do you think at all before you post?

    North Carolina again??

    Yesterday they wrote a bill to create a state religion, today they announced plans to cut worker and unemployment benefits, and now this? The hell is going on over there?

    That presumes your child goes to school in the same state in which the parents live. What if the parents live in New York and the child goes to school in North Carolina? Unless you're saying that all states share all their voters lists with all other states and each of their states cross references the names and SSN or some other form of ID my question still stands. Who ensures that a student who is registered as a resident in New York, at their parents' house, and attending school in North Carolina and registered at their school address, does not cast a federal election vote in both jurisdictions?

    That makes me feel better - I've never heard of a college student breaking the law, so there's no problem.

    Re: Senate bill seeks to curb college vote

    Some posters have made a valid point, in my mind, related to the types of things that are on ballots at various times and whether a transient who has no roots in the community and will be gone again in a couple of years has any interest or right to express an interest in those decisions.

    As an example, the SSM debate going on in many states. If I live in New York, where SSM is legal, and I go to school in Texas, where it's not, and a ballot proposition comes up related to SSM, why should I as a resident of New York help/hinder the determination of Texans on what they want to do for their state with the issue?

    Republicans spend an inordinate amount of time making it incrementally more difficult to vote. it's a lousy strategy, and it's one that I won't be rewarding with my own incrementally more difficult to cast vote.
