Yes! Federal law provides that in all 50 states, homeless people can register and vote. They can list a shelter or even a street corner as their residence. They do need to provide a mailing address (which can be different from the registration address), which can be a shelter, organization, or anyone willing to accept mail on their behalf. http://www.nonprofitvote.org/voting-and-homelessness/; http://www.lwvny.org/advocacy/vote/RTVHomelessIndividuals.pdf
