    I have submitted my Nomination applications to both my Senators and my congressman in the state of Illinois. But due to relocation of my father's job, our family has moved to Nevada. I have not yet gotten a Nevada license, but I am unsure if living here from here on out takes me out of the running for a nomination. in Illinois. I am desperate for some answers on what to do. Thank you for your time and help, and god bless.

    Someone more knowledgeable will come along and give you confirming information but for now....

    You are enrolled in school in Nevada and your parents are now residents there? If so, find out your Nevada representation. Apply to those sources before their deadline. When determined which is the correct nominating source you will have both options covered.

    Edit: Even if not enrolled in HS in Nevada you should also apply for a Nevada nomination. Are you enrolled in college in Nevada?

    +1 AROTC Parent.

    Each applicant for a nomination must meet all eligibility requirements including living within the boundaries of the congressional district as of July 1st of the year of admission to an academy.

    For example, here are the eligibility rules from District 3 Congressman Joe Heck's website:

    What are the basic eligibility requirements?
    Each applicant for a nomination must meet the following eligibility requirements as of July 1st of the year of admission to an academy:

    • Age: Be at least 17 years old, but not have passed the 23rd birthday
    • Citizenship: Must be a U.S. citizen
    • Marital Status: Must be unmarried, not pregnant, and without legal obligation to support children or other dependents
    • Residence: Must reside within the boundaries of the 3th Congressional District of Nevada.
    • Skill / Fitness: Must meet the medical, physical, and academic requirements of the Academy.

    I hope that wasn't copy and pasted, "3th Congressional District." That wouldn't look too good for a Congressman.

    Rather then worry about what you need to do, call the MOC in Illinois where you applied and explain your situation to get their official answer. You probably aren't the first person who moved during the application process.

    You can continue the process in Illinois if the MOC will allow it, but it may be more convenient to re-submit the applications in Nevada if you are able to do so.

    Talk to RC. Although many are similar, every MOC has their own process. Check websites and call MOCs' in Nevada to find out their procedures and deadlines. I would guess a senatorial nomination would be less competitive in Nevada with a population of about 3 million vs Illinois with a population of over 12 million.

    For all who were curious, I have submitted applications to all the MOCs in Nevada, and am currently in the process of receiving nominations here. Thank you all for your help and good luck.
