May the Law of Unintended Consequences Bite Back
Reader comment on: Vote Where It Counts

It's certainly amusing to learn that in New York, a weekend, seasonal, or other secondary home is the same as a "principal" home. So, defying the English language, there can be an unlimited number of "principal" homes. Maybe Donald Trump "lives" in Florida.
From the Q&A in the linked document, this made *me* chuckle:
Q: If I register to vote from my second home, can my landlord use that as evidence that my country home is actually my primary residence?
A (in part): "Tenants in rent-controlled or rent-stabilized apartments or lofts need to consider their particular circumstances when deciding where to register."
And then there's this:
Q: Should I tell the Board of Elections that I am changing my registration to vote from a vacation home, or a home that is not my primary residence?
How much closer can one get to promoting voter fraud?
