Any address change submitted on your driver's license will automatically carry over to your Voter Identification Card. This legislation particularly affects college students who often have their voter registration or driver's license changed to match their college address.
Students: please be aware that you can no longer use your college address on one (driver's license) if the other (voter registration) reflects your local residence; the addresses must match.
