College Student Voting In Pennsylvania

Students can establish residency in Pennsylvania if they have a present intention to remain at their Pennsylvania school address for the time being, and they intend to make it their principal home.Students attending school in Pennsylvania may register and vote at their school address, and Pennsylvania law gives students the explicit right to register to vote in the district where they live while attending college.

If you lived in Pennsylvania before moving elsewhere to attend school, and wish to cast a vote in Pennsylvania, you should have no problem doing so unless you register to vote in another state. Like most states, Pennsylvania allows students to keep their voting residency even if they move out of the district to attend school, and the only way you will lose this residency is by establishing residency in a new state.
