The Broward County Property Appraiser's office provides a way to file for homestead exemption online. Here's the starting page (link will only work in Internet Explorer), which lists the residency qualifications for homestead exemption:

Would this explain why someone would be so "crazy" as to vote in two states? Are there similar requirements in order to qualify as a Florida resident and avoid or reduce income taxes in other states?

Looks like a hard mistake to make. I am surpised this story has fallen off the radar so quickly. It should be national news, in my opinion.

so you need to be registered to vote, and have a driver's license.

i was registered to vote and had a driver's license in OK and CA for 2+ years. big deal.

Who would think we would have our finger print scanned when we get our driver's license? Because of different reasons, it has become necessary, and especially in our next presidential vote which will be here before we know it, it may be necessary to have the same type of scanner and accountability check system in place.

Kathy Taylor obviously hired a professional to do her television ads and ads during prime time t.v. is expensive.

Is it fair to the popular candidate Chris Medlock that has raised and spent so little on this campaign that he should be over-shadowed
by two democrats that spending habits that should make voters weary?
If they spend that
freely with their own money to promote themselves, what will they
do if they are elected as our next Mayor, or does it bother anyone with them being so rich they could easily be able to manipulate the press and many other people in "business".

Her donor list obviously was not from Oral Roberts faith seed givers which many of those giving believe a miracle
will happen if they give money.

Jeff, you say you were registered and had drivers licenses in two states. Did you actually vote for President in both states? Did you claim homestead exemption in both states? Were you claiming residence in one state soley to avoid paying property taxes in the state in which you now wish to become an elected official? THAT, my friend, IS a big deal. One that merits investigation by our district attorney.

JB, it was Carlos that made that statement.By the way Carlos also helped make Taylors webpage so take that as you want.

I am a law biding citizen. I wake up early in the mornings on voting days and go to my assigned polling place. I take it very seriously. I remember when and who and or what I vote for. Doing things that are not in compliance with the law is very serious. That's why there are consequences to breaking laws. If you have no respect for the law, I wish you would keep your comments confined to a forum (not this one) where there can be an open dialouge. You and people like you make me mad.
