“Judge orders Fairfax to allow GMU students to vote after their registrations were rejected”


A federal judge ruled Friday that Fairfax County must allow 171 George Mason University students to vote next week after their voter registration applications were rejected for providing a generic university address.
U.S. District Judge Rossie D. Alston Jr. ordered the county to allow students who submitted their applications on or before Oct. 15 to correct their address information, giving them until 5 p.m. Saturday to do so.
If the students miss that deadline, they must be allowed to vote Tuesday with a provisional ballot at the university’s Merten Hall precinct if they provide their specific addresses beforehand, the judge ruled.
