If you are a student and consider your “home” to be the place where you live when you are not attending school (that is, you plan on returning there), then you are eligible to vote in both your “home” municipality and in the municipality where you live while attending school.
If your household receives a Voter Information Letter for a former resident who is no longer an eligible voter, such as a family member who moved, do not open or forward it. Mark the envelope “Return to Sender” and drop it in a mailbox.
If you receive multiple Voter Information Letters or notice errors in your information, please contact Election Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or 289-580-9774.
