Student Voting

A registered voter in Colorado is considered a resident of Colorado for motor vehicle registration and operation purposes and for income tax purposes. Federal law prohibits voting in more than one jurisdiction/state.

For out-of-state/new to Colorado students:

  • As noted above, a registered voter in Colorado is considered a resident of Colorado for motor vehicle registration and operation purposes and for income tax purposes.
  • A person residing in Colorado temporarily may want to register to vote in their home state and vote by mail, if their home state allows absentee voting.

For out-of-County students:

  • Colorado law allows college students to keep their voter registration in their hometown and vote by mail from college. This choice is up to the student. They may re-register in the jurisdiction where they are attending school, or they may retain their registration in their hometown.

For Colorado students attending school out of state:

  • If you intend to keep Colorado as your permanent home for motor vehicle and income tax purposes, register as a Colorado voter or make sure your voter registration is up-to-date with your out-of-state mailing address. Your residential address is your Colorado home address.
Before registering to vote, please review the Voter Registration Requirements and Information.
