    We wanted our kid to vote for Obama in Nevada where he was in college, which was a swing state, rather than his home state, which was deep blue.

    My understanding was that Nevada wouldn't let a student become a resident and vote without voiding their participation in  the interstate reduced tuition deal between several Western States.
    Ultimately he voted via absentee ballot in a state where the good guy won with 54%, instead of contributing to the 52.4% Obama won by in Nevada.

    •  I'm not familiar with the reduced tuition deal (0+ / 0-)

      Does the tuition end up being lower than if he had established Nevada residency and paid in-state tuition?

        was far below the out of state rate and slightly higher than in-state tuition.  Several western states are part of a compact.

        I was told he would have leave school for a year and live/work in Nevada to establish residency.
