Trump originally tried to register to vote in Florida while claiming his “legal residence” was in another part of the country — Washington, D.C. — according to Florida elections records.
The September 2019 registration application listed Trump’s legal residence as 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, the location of the White House. That created a potential problem for Trump: Florida law requires voters to be legal residents of the state. A month later, Trump resubmitted his application to use a Florida address and in March he voted by mail in Florida’s Republican primary.
As recently as 2019, the city manager of Deltona, Fla., agreed to pay more than $5,000 to avoid facing criminal charges after records showed she registered to vote using the address of the Deltona City Hall, according to the Post.
In 1993, a Palm Beach restaurant owner was charged with felony voter fraud for registering in the city but living in neighboring West Palm Beach. The charge was later dropped.
