Just recently suddenly moved to a new county, but if my voting privileges and taxes are still under the address/county of my old residence that I no longer live in, is my legal residence that county or my new home county? What constitutes your Legal County of Residence?

Also sorry if this is a super basic question! Found tons of threads on the state residence, but not county residence. I'm in the same state, just different county.

Why does it matter? In any event, the correct answer is where you actually live, not where you used to live but didn't officially change yet!!

Haha I just didn't want AMCAS to be confused why all of my official documents are under another address, especially because this new place is in an MUA but all my documents are in a county that isn't. But thank you!

But, if you moved, aren't you going to change your address so all of your official documents will reach you going forward? AMCAS will go by the address you give them, not the one on a transcript that could be several years old, or was a good address while you were in school, even if only a month ago!! Lots of people change addresses when they graduate from UG, or take gap years, go to med school, etc.

True true, thank you!! Yes, I plan on changing the address as soon as I can, just still figuring out how to update everything (these documents are new to me haha), especially from home/phone. Thank you again!
