I have read the bills. The OR is not additional requirement, it's an alternative requirement. You can vote in the same state you live in if you establish your residency in that state.

nothing

you vote where you are registered...where you establish residency

the problem is that 'some people' (a very small percentage(as usual the small percentage screws everyone else)) have voted twice,,,ie a guy who is from NYC but goes to college at princeston could very easily vote at princeston, then vote again in NYC.

this proposed law (although redundant) clarifies the rules

So even if people are permanent residents, they couldn't vote if they were college students if their parents did not live there.

That's a great way to champion "Freedom"!

In states, parties clash over voting laws that call for IDs, limits on where college students can cast ballots
Not like the dems who use batons

This is a direct attack in the youth vote which the GOP KNOWS it can't win.

Why can't the GOP win the youth vote?

They want to maintain the social status quo in terms of who stays in power and expanding the power of those already in power.

And they are too narrow minded and they are too bigoted.
