Are you full-time RVers registered in South Dakota, Texas or Florida?

State rules for full-time RVers are changing. For example, some counties are now requiring mandatory Jury Duty even if traveling and thousands of miles from the state. (I have a personal story about that coming up in Sunday’s newsletter.) Requirements for residency are also changing, at least for voting.

For you full-time RVers who are registered in Florida, Texas or South Dakota, have you noticed recent changes in rules? What are they? Will they change your state of residency or future plans? Please leave a comment below the poll. I may use them in an upcoming story. Thank you!

At this point in the game, I honestly do not care about voting anymore. Does your vote REALLY matter these days?

Yes, Mike, it does!!! Please do not give up, every voters depend on you, & all the rest to make their voice heard. Yes, they cheated, the count in 6 states changing by the 1000s in an instant, millions witnessed it, many took pix & recorded the devilry. Nonetheless, you & all of us Must Fight Back, ALL of us must Stand & Fight for what we believe is just; doing so it the very essence of what it means to be an American!

I’m with Mike C., I don’t care about voting anymore when my vote doesn’t count anyway. Also I don’t care to participate in criminal enterprises, such as the U.S. government. I am not represented any longer. Taxation without representation is just extortion. IMO. Change my mind.

With every election someone wins and someone loses. If your candidate loses that means he or she didn’t get enough votes. IT doesn’t mean someone cheated, 62 courts in our country listen to your evidence or lack of it and they decided nothing was wrong. That’s why they have elections every 4 years so the losers can run again. {bleeped}

I’m full time but I’m fortunate enough to be able to have a “home base” (a fixer upper I’ve been remodeling over the past decade for my parents) in Indiana that I can use for my legal home address. It also makes work and taxes simpler since the company I work for is based in Indiana.

Geee, the “red” states. Who’d a thunk?…
I know you won’t post it, that’s O.K.
“They” should have some little bit of common sense left?
Thanks for the swell R.V. info site!

We have been Floridians since 2020 without a residence there as we are full-timers. We were denied the ability to vote as we have a traveling mailbox that Florida deemed not a residence (even though the traveling mailbox company states you can use it for voting. We were also residents of California before that and also were denied a voter registration due to the traveling mailbox).

We are residents of FL through Bushnell – Escapees. I noticed the same on the absentee ballots. I don’t know what’s changed for jury duty.

We are registered in South Dakota and are changing to Oklahoma only because we bought a house there where we are now spending our summers (yea, I know) until we can get it fixed the way we want it to rent out to traveling nurses.

We are registered in S. D. and the new law states we can only vote federally now. I really don’t care about not voting for the state, I feel those that live there year round should make those decisions anyway.

Planning to change residence from Wisconsin to Florida in November. Very interested in the voting process in all three states.

We have lived in Florida for over 50 years. We have been full timers for 5 years while keeping our residency in Florida using our daughters address (which is legal). We now have to register every year to vote by mail, it used to be if you were registered it was good until you changed your address. 😔

Is that for everyone or just you because of travel? How do “they” know? We do the same in Tx (use daughter’s address but we are also there in the winter…Tx that is).
If your not there how can you register…maybe that’s their plan..interesting.
