We have used Fl as a domicile since 2004, and SBI for the last 5 years. It is completely legal, and voting is no problem. DL and title and registration hasn't been any issue either. We had one small mail forwarder go out of business very suddenly and left us high and dry, so if I were you I would go with a highly recommended one like SBI or Escapees or Good Sam.

Florida just enacted new voting laws that place additional rules and restrictions around mail-in ballots, so be sure to ask how a forwarding address would be treated under the new laws.

We used SBI for years - great service, great people in the offices. The main office is just below Jacksonville.

The only difference that I know of is that you will have to request a mail in ballot every election and that you will have to have a reason. Being out of state should fix that. You will have to mail the ballot in and cannot give it to someone else to drop it off. No big deal.

Just basic voting integrity measures.

The state will mail the requested ballot to your address. (The same address on your DL and everything else that is supplied by the mail service) The mail service sends it to you wherever you are. You send the ballot to the state. I don't see an issue.

I believe it is going to be harder to vote in areas withered large numbers of full timers register. The local election officials rightly take a dim view of those voters, especially when it comes to local issues. There is something wrong with people who never step foot in town or county voting on bond issues, county elected officials, school boards etc. A crackdown wouldn’t surprise me.

Yes there is something wrong with it, but there will be no problems.

IMHO, it's unfortunate that our country requires us to be a state citizen, instead of a citizen-at-large. I insist on participating in national level elections but really couldn't care less about local issues at my commercial mail forwarder county.

The camel in the tent that you didn't ask about is that financial institutions are unlikely to accept a PMB address.

Absolutely not true that banks won't accept a PMB.
