Voting in November: Questions
Ok, well I'll be a first time voter this election in November. How does voting work when you are away from your home state in college? I believe it's by absentee ballots, but I have never done it so I do not know how it is done or what I have to do. If anyone is familiar with voting away from your home state please shine some light on this. Thanks.
Do a google search for (your home state) absentee voting
You'll come up with something more accurate than anyone here could come up with.
Ah why did I bother making a thread. It was ridiculously easy to figure out. It's one of those DOh! moments.

How you actually go about registering as an absentee is entirely up to your state or local precinct. That said, once registered, voting is typically done by mail. They mail you a ballot in time for you to fill it out and mail it back before election day. I don't know that any states have electronic/internet absentee voting yet -- it's been talked about, but given all the problems with electronic in-person voting, I expect it to be awhile...
If you'll get really lucky, maybe your precinct will be like Detroit. Here, hundreds of dead people get to vote for mayor.
