College Student Voting In Mississippi

Students can establish residency in Mississippi if they have a present intent to remain at their Mississippi school address for the time being, and they intend to make it their principal home.If you moved from another state to attend school in Mississippi, you may vote in Mississippi if (1) you have resided in the county or municipality where you wish to vote for at least 30 days, and (2) you intend to make your school residence your home.

If you moved from Mississippi to attend school in another state but wish to vote in Mississippi elections (i.e., vote from your parents'Mississippi address), you should have no problem doing so, unless you have already registered to vote in another state.Likewise, if you move from one Mississippi county to another to attend school, you may still vote from your original county, unless you register in the county where your school is located.

Mover's Guide: Mississippi

Under federal law, if you move within 30 days of a presidential election, you are allowed to vote for President and Vice President in your former state of residence, either in person or by absentee ballot.

If you moved to Mississippi from another state, you must register to vote in Mississippi to be able to vote. The last day to register in time to vote in the next election is thirty days before the election.

If you moved to a new address that is covered by the same polling place as your old address, you are allowed to vote at that polling place after confirming your change of address. This is true regardless of how close to the election you moved.

If you moved to a new address within the same county but in a different polling place, you are entitled to vote a provisional ballot at your new polling place. You need to sign an affidavit, including your current address and stating that you believe you are registered to vote in the county in order to vote by provisional ballot. The provisional ballot will be counted if you are registered in the county and voted in the precinct in which you currently reside.

If you moved to a new address in a different county, you must register to vote at your new address in the county before the registration deadline.
