Annexation glitch – not enough registered voters?

It seems there may be a technical/legal problem with the annexation referendum. More than 50% of the property owners in that area do not appear to be registered voters. As a result there must be a separate vote requiring 50% of the property owners to authorize a referendum. This makes sense since, without a requirement such as this, the majority would be disenfranchised with respect to the annexation of their property.

    • Chapter 171 of the 2013 Florida Statutes details the requirements for annexation procedures. Specific requirements are found by researching the entire Chapter or, more specifically, 171.0413(2)(e), 171.0413(5), and 171.0413(6)

  1. I BELIEVE THAT PEOPLE WHO ARE RESIDENTS OF ANOTHER STATE AND ARE NOT A YEAR ROUND RESIDENT OF FLORIDA CANNOT REGISTER TO VOTE UNLESS THEY GIVE UP THEIR OTHER STATES RESIDENTCY AND BECOME A FLORIDA RESIDENT
