I received the following email:
I just moved to NY from Texas last month to attend graduate school **, and I was wondering if it would be better to register to vote for the fall election here locally, or if I should ask for an absentee ballot from ** County back home in Texas.
I’m currently in the process of selling my house in **, and I don’t forsee going back to Texas any time soon. But I have lived, worked and voted in ** County for the last several years.
Could you advise me as to what would make most sense?
You should vote where you think your vote is most likely to make a difference. In presidential vote, neither NY nor TX will be decisive. So you should see what the down-ballot races are.
