Can I choose which address to use for registering?
You must register where you live. If you live at different places at different times of the year, you can register at only one address. If you are a student living at school, you must decide whether to register at your parent's home address or at your school address (but not both!)

Persons who go south for the winter must decide whether to register in Iowa or in the other state.

You cannot register at a business address or at a property that you own but do not live in. You can only register at a former address if you are in the military or living outside the country.

For more information on voting for college students, please visit the Iowa Secretary of State page.
