buckeyefan4 Posted September 2, 2021 Report Share Posted September 2, 2021 My wife and I have been members of Escapees and have been full-timers since 2017. We have been very pleased with the Mail Forwarding Service, and have used our PMB to acquire Texas driver's licenses, register our vehicles, and register to vote. We typically spend 2-3 months per year in the Kerrville area getting annual check-ups and getting the rig serviced. We don't own any property or lease any lots in Texas or any other state. All seemed well, but I noted--and this thread is in no way meant to be political--that Senate Bill 1111 went into effect on 9/1/21. SB 1111 in essence bans Texas voters from registering to vote using a post office box as their address. I realize our PMB is not a PO Box, but the law also states "A person may not establish a residence at any place the person has not inhabited." Obviously, we can't inhabit a PMB. The bill empowers voter registrars to send a confirmation notice letter to a registered voter requiring them to confirm their address. If a completed confirmation notice is not received within 30 days, that voter may become unregistered and be unable to vote. To confirm the address of their current residence the voter must sign a sworn statement that their address is not a commercial location. They would also have to provide the same information required for one to register to vote, including some form of identification. To add to my confusion, you can show a driver's license as a valid form of ID, but that contains the PMB address. Is it just me worrying, or are those of us using the PMB to register to vote in danger of being taken off of the voter roles? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
