The Cambridge Board of Elections has ruled that students who are "legal residents" of the City will be allowed to register to vote on campus.
Edward J. Samp. Jr. one of four Election commissioners, will meet today with Alan Candiotti, teaching fellow in Mathematics and co-coordinator of McGovern-Shriver headquarters in Cambridge, to decide on specific dates and times for registrars to visit Harvard, MIT and Lesley College.
However, a confrontation seems inevitable over the question of "legal residence" and "domicile." Samp said last night that only students who can prove that Cambridge is their permanent home for the foreseeable future will be registered.
