How is this voter suppression? Maybe I'm missing reading this...but if a Student declares their residence is in Ohio, they should be charged in-State tuition.

If they are legal residences of Ohio, they should pay in-State tuition. If they aren't legal residents of Ohio they shouldn't be allowed to vote in Ohio elections. _______________________________

I would not say voter suppression, Because that is just friggin stupid, because they can still vote where they originally resided.

However, I side with the they should vote where they are. The In-state tuition rates is not usually based on your last address, but some regard for your previous to going to school. That makes sense.

The voter registration issue? Well, if I move tomorrow and establisha new residence, I vote where I reside.

The eventual choice of where they are going to live? Probably up in the air, unless they studied Enlish lit, in which case the basement of their folks home is about right.

But I know my daughter, is exposed to a lot more Pennsylvania politics than NY politics living in PA most of the year. The candidates visit and pitch to her.

She is actually a far more informed voter there than where she had to go to school from.

For me, registering where they go to school makes sense.
