Students are eligible to vote in the electoral district where they permanently reside. It is up to the student to determine their permanent residence based on the Election Act.

The Ontario Election Act defines "residence" as the place a person intends to return whenever they are absent for any length of time. The Act states that:

    -   The place where their family resides is their permanent residence
        until they move elsewhere with the intention of making that change
    -   If a person has no other permanent lodging place, the place where he
        or she occupies a room or part of a room as a regular lodger is his
        or her residence.
