Here or your home state?
I'M A STUDENT, AND MY ADDRESS IN ITHACA IS ONLY TEMPORARY. DO I VOTE HERE, OR AT MY PERMANENT ADDRESS? This is a personal choice. You might choose based on which electoral contests are most important to you, where you think your vote will have the most impact, the place you most strongly identify with, or other factors. However, you may only vote in ONE place.
a) Request an absentee ballot from your permanent address, and vote by mail. If you're not registered at your permanent address, you must first register before you request an absentee ballot. Find information and deadlines for your particular state and county at: vote411.org.
b) Register in Ithaca/Tompkins County and vote here.
