Note that OP is in Alberta,Canada...different country, different rules. Asking a legal question on an internet forum is only worth what you pay for it...dick all!!

Z,
Good observation, no one took notice of that before dispensing "legal" advice.

I'm sure most people noticed, I know I did. But the question was asked without regard to country of origin. So people answered with what they thought was correct and gave their opinion.

RV'ers and boaters using mail forwarding services have an absolute right to vote where they've established their domicile. Note that "residency" is not the same as a "domicile". When you register a domicile intention, you're declaring that location as the place you intend to return to when you're no longer traveling. Whether that particular elections commissioner can prevent people from voting in local elections is a matter for the courts, but he does not have the right to prevent them from voting in statewide and national elections. Even the homeless living under a bridge or in a different shelter every night have that right.


Your domicile remains as your prior location until you establish a new one. So if you move to Thailand from Wyoming, you are still domiciled in Wymoning until you establish a new domicile. Claiming a new domicile is intended for a modest transition period not years.

The issue with mail services is people are clearly claiming a domicile when they have no intention of ever moving there...and yes, my understanding is the courts are being brought in to sort it out.

Homeless people = red herring in this discussion. They can vote in the area they live as it is legitimately their domicile and residence. Some hassles proving it but otherwise a totally different discussion.

When you post to a US website where 90% of the members are from the US...it's pretty reasonable to assume they aren't from Zimbabwe. If you have to verify every detail and possible exemption to every rule...may as well shut the site down as no one will ever know enough to answer.

No harm but really the OP should have clarified that he is Canadian if he wanted Canada specific info.

Valhalla....I agree with you, but I think you missed my point. Looking for legal advise on an internet forum is what I was calling out.

Then we disagree. I wouldn't be the farm on it but not a bad idea to do preliminary research thru this method.

When we were full-timing a few years ago, we used a Personal Mail Box (PMB) at a UPS store in the town where we were registered to vote, licensed our vehicles, etc. for our mail. The UPS store forwarded our mail, weekly, to whatever address we gave them.
One RV park we stayed at for several months refused to act as a mail clearing house for their residents, so we had to get our mail at General Delivery, the local Post Office. That is the address we gave the UPS store. No problems.
Before we relocated, we advised the UPS store to hold mail until notified of the new address, to avoid problems with the Post Office.
When we settled down and established roots again (same state, different county), we closed the UPS store account and notified the Post Office and those who regularly sent us mail of the permanent change of address. Again, no problems.
It really is simpler than some seem to think it is.
