Can College Students Register at their College Address?

The NYS Board of Elections website says that a registrant must live at the address on the registration form at least 30 days before an election.

RVA called the Monroe County Board of Elections for clarification.  The answer is that college students have a choice.  They can register here or they can register at their home (assuming it’s not here).  If they register here, they must vote at the polling place for the address here.  If they register at home, they must either request an absentee ballot from there or go to vote at the polling pace for that address.
