As a student, you have a constitutional right to register and vote at your college address or your family's address - whichever place you consider to be home. That can be your family’s house, your apartment, or your dorm room.  “Misinformation - such as claims that registering to vote at school may jeopardize eligibility for financial aid or insurance - are sometimes used to discourage students from voting locally.” (http://campusvoteproject.org/new-yorkNote, however, that you select only one place in which to vote: you can’t vote from both your family’s home and at your college home.       This is the law in all states; here are references to the New York law: Williams v. Salerno, 792 F.2d 323, 327 (2d Cir. 1986); see also N.Y. Elec. Law § 1-104(22).
