Student Argues for Local Voting Rights

Young Han, a college student in New York State, talks about his efforts to reform voting registration rules. Han tried to register in the town where he attends school, but, like many students, was told he should vote absentee where his parents live more than 2,000 miles away. Han argues that full-time college students pay sales taxes, sometimes income taxes, so why not cast ballots? NPR's Renee Montagne talks with Han.
