About being registered to vote in more than one state

There have been some questions lately, especially among college students, about whether it’s ok to be registered to vote in two states.  The answer to that question is NO.  It’s not ok to be registered to vote in two states.  When you move from one state to another, it’s YOUR responsibility to notify the old state that you have moved. According to our local board of elections, it can be considered a felony to maintain voter registration in more than one state.  If you have voted in a state in which you are not a resident, you have committed a crime.  You will want to choose ONE state in which to maintain voter registration, and notify all others.  Contact the board of elections in your area to find out how to do that.  Please do not find yourself in a situation in which you could be tried for voter fraud. Voter rolls are being scrutinized in the battleground states!  Worst case scenario = fines and prison.
