North Carolina General Statutes § 163-57 Residence defined for registration and voting - Legal Research
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.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.
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.
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?
