Students can establish residency in New York if they have a present intention to remain at their New York school address for the time being, and they intend to make it their principal home.
Students who lived in New York before moving elsewhere to attend school, and who wish to establish or keep their New York voting residency, should have no problem doing so unless they have already registered to vote in another state. New York explicitly 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.
Mover's Guide: New York
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 New York from another state, you must register to vote in New York to be able to vote.
The last day to register in time to vote in the next election is twenty-five days before the election.
If you moved from out of state, you are only eligible to register if you have been a resident of New York and of the county, city or village in which you want to vote for at least thirty days prior to the election in which you want to vote.
If you moved to a new address that is covered by the same polling place as your old address, you can vote a regular ballot after confirming your change of address at that polling place. This is true regardless of close to the election you moved.
If you moved to a new address within the same county or city but with a different polling place, you can vote at your new polling place by affidavit ballot.Your affidavit ballot will be counted if election workers confirm you were registered at your old address and voted at the correct polling place for your new address.
If you moved to a new address in a different county or city, you should complete a new registration form before the registration deadline to update your registration records.
