“Where you register to vote will not affect federal financial aid such as Pell Grants and Perkins or Stafford loans or your dependency status regarding FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) (http://campusvoteproject.org/new-york). Occasionally, state and private scholarships are reserved for those who live in a particular location; however, voter registration is rarely considered to be definitive of residence for financial aid purposes.
