If you are a dual resident, we urge you to vote in Columbia County where elections are often decided by a handful of votes. Your vote in Columbia County makes a difference!

  • If you have more than one residence, you are entitled to choose one of them as your residence for voting purposes.

  • You have the right to choose which residence you register and vote from, as long as you have a legitimate, significant and continuing attachment to it.

  • There is no requirement that one’s driver license, insurance or any other specific document reflect the residence from which a person is registered to vote. Being able to show some indicia of residence is important in the event the registration is challenged.
