A DORMITORY ADDRESS OR OTHER TEMPORARY COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY 30 ADDRESS. 31 2. ANY ADDRESS WITHIN THIS STATE AT WHICH THE INDIVIDUAL DOES NOT 32 INTEND TO RESIDE FOR TWELVE MONTHS OF EACH YEAR. 
This bill would disenfranchise students from being able to register to vote on college campuses, dorms, or any "temporary address within the state at which the individual does not intend to reside for 12 months of each year."  This bill is a direct target at young people because young people are turning out to vote at enormous historical numbers.

    Although I understand the idea behind NAU students not being able to fully understand some issues in town, this is totally WRONG. Instead he should try being proactive and invest some money to educate the students instead. They are not children but educated young adults that most want a shot at living here. Give them some credit.

    There should never, ever be restrictions for US citizens to vote in their local elections.
