It is important that college students are aware of the voting processes in the county that they are currently residing in. With this years race being predicted to be closer than last years, either political side needs as many voters as possible to stay ahead of their competitor.
Even though you may be registered to vote in your home town, the county where you attend school will put up issues on the ballot that may affect you, and even if you are not interested in voting in any other county beside your hometown, you need to know that you can be affected.
Whether you are in tune with what is going on in your hometown or not and you want your vote to count, you can get an absentee ballot. An absentee ballot “is the printed ballot marked by an absent voter, sealed in a special envelope, and given or mailed to the municipal clerk,” as stated on gab.wi.gov. If you are interested in an absentee ballot, you can visit http://sos.georgia.gov/elections/elections/voter_information/absentee.htm to fill out an application.
