    WWC is a private school with a national reputation. I'd be ready to bet that at least 50% of the student body comes from out of state, and so wouldn't be affected by this legislation at all.

    Similarly, taking UNC students out of Chapel Hill, or Duke students (a surprisingly small percentage of whom are from in state) out of Durham isn't going to do a damn thing to election results in Orange or Durham counties.

    Frankly, it's much more likely that forcing students to vote from home will upset the math on which the 2010 gerrymander was based.
