TurboVote's Text BotIn Vermont, college students can register to vote in-state using the address of their residence hall or apartment. There are pros and cons to choosing Vermont vs your home state.

TurboVote now offers a tool called Student Voter Bot, which helps students determine where they should register to vote. With this new tool, students can simply text 762ALLVOTE (762.255.8683) for help answering the question "Where should I register to vote?" Text "VOTE" to the number above for a series of YES or NO questions to help determine where you can register. Students will then be asked where they go to school, and they'll be sent to their school's unique TurboVote site with guidance on where they should register and resources to answer further questions!

Vermont: If you choose Vermont, you will be able to cast your ballot in person; however, you will need to re-register in your home state once you graduate.

Home State: You will not need to re-register upon graduation, however you will need to request an absentee ballot to vote in November. You also have less time to register if you plan to vote in the general election. 
See this web page for deadlines in each state (scroll to the bottom to see deadlines for each state).
