I seriously doubt that many if any people who use St Brendanís Isle vote on local elections.
Voting is a very sensitive thing in the US, you can be homeless and use under the bridge as your residence for voting, that has been tested long ago, but you canít use that address for mail or pretty much anything else except to vote.
However you have to have a home in the US today, the government
requires it, try to open a bank account and see what happens. Due to 911 as being the reason given, theory of terrorists moving money
around, you have to have a verified physical address. We had a hard time with USAA when opening up my Wifeís account, and they were saying they would cancel my membership
that has been there since 1987 too. They wanted rent receipts, power bills, tax records to show where we lived, none of which we could supply.
When you register with St Brendanís Isle you fill out a statement of domicile form which states your vessel with your USCG registration
number is your Legal
domicile, this form is notarized and on file in the court house in Clay County. USAA wouldnít accept that form either.
We were close by so we drove to Green Cove Springs and registered to vote, USAA accepted the voter registration
So you never know what you may need, until you need it.
I am a resident of nowhere, even briefly considered having my home port be Earth but havenít bothered.
