Student Voting Guidelines

In most cases, college students can choose whether to register to vote (or stay registered to vote) in their hometown or to change their registration to their new residence.

It is important to know that a registered voter in Colorado is considered a resident of Colorado for income tax purposes and for motor vehicle registration/operation purposes. To register to vote in Colorado, you must be a resident for at least 22 days before the election.

Colorado residents going to college out of state:

Colorado residents going to college in another part of Colorado (and living there):

  • You may either register to vote (or keep your voter registration) at your hometown address or re-register in the jurisdiction where you are attending school.
  • Your voter registration address determines some of the content you will see on your ballot.
  • If you are keeping your registration at your hometown address, be sure to update your voter registration with your current mailing address so your mail ballot can find you.
  • CU students living on campus – see below for specific instructions on registering to vote and/or updating your mailing address.

Out-of-state students going to college in Colorado:

  • You may choose either to register to vote (or stay registered to vote) in your home state or register in Colorado. To register in Colorado, you must be a resident for at least 22 days before the election.
  • If you are temporarily residing in Colorado, you may wish to register (or remain registered) to vote in your home state and vote by mail (if permitted by your home state).
  • If you choose to register in Colorado, you will be considered a resident of Colorado for motor vehicle registration and operation purposes and for income tax purposes.
  • CU students living on campus – see below for specific instructions on registering to vote and/or updating your mailing address.

Before registering to vote, please review the Voter Registration Requirements and Information.
