Two-state License Possibility

Can anyone tell me the possibilities of having a license in two-states. I know it's practically an impossibility, but, for example, I'm a big Grisham fan, and at the end of his books, it says he lives in Virginia and Mississippi. I know of folks who own property in more than one state. The reason I ask is, I own some property (and would like to buy more) in Illinois (which I think would require me to have residency - a license - there), but I work in Virginia, and would also like to further my education while I'm out here (I don't want to do online stuff, or distance ed - I like classroom education). But to do that inexpensively (relatively), I would like to get in-state rates. I'm guessing I'll just have to deal with just the one (I've never heard of anyone having two) and change it to here.

You don't need residence in a state to buy property there. You can buy all you want and live somewhere else. However, owning that property can give you the right to claim residency whenever you want (which is how Dick Cheney, a Texas resident for years was able to claim his home of Wyoming). Also, a driver's license does not determine your residency. I have a CA driver's license good until 2009 but I am registered to vote and therefore also a Louisiana resident. Oh, get this, I am a citizen of both states for legal purposes

I'm curious, then - where do you vote - Louisiana?

That's all good to know. I wondered how ol' Dick Cheney was able to claim Wyoming when accepting the VP nomination in '00. Thanks a lot.

My folks switched their legal residency to Florida and had to surrender their PA licenses when they went to get Florida ones...

Yeah, figured I'd have to make the switch. Just hope it's no biggie if I'd like to get another place back in Illinois. I'll just have to ask next time I'm back.

I think it depends on a particular state, but in general, like USAF said, you have to surrender once license to get another.

Not sure how tight the rules are on voting, with the recent problems in the past few years, it's probably doable, but I could probably vote in Oregon and also Illinois if I wanted to, perhaps even California, as I have family in each of those states.

Imagine...I could have voted for W a total of 4 times, not just 1!

Vehicle registration laws are pretty tight too. They are based on state of official residency which is wherever you live for the majority of the year. When I moved to AZ I had to surrender the driver's license immediately. As for the vehicle license, technically you're supposed to surrender it within 90 days but that's rarely enforced. Voting is also very strict, as well it should be. Legally, you are only allowed to vote in the precinct in which you are recorded as a permanent resident under the voting rolls. If you will not be able to vote early in your home precinct, you can cast an absentee ballot under the limitations prescribed by law. To cast your ballot, yoiu must sign in with the officials at the polling station to which you are assigned. Only then will they give you a ballot to mark. If your name is not on their voter's registration book, they will not allow you to participate but will instead instruct you to vote at your assigned polling station within your precinct.

Bah, If you could only vote for a president once, there would never even be a democrat president  Silly

You forget that one can only have one USA state or territory issued license, especially as to Commercial endorsements. (note: Foreign nationals residing for more than a certain number of months must have a USA state or territory license issued, but can keep the license of their home country). All state driver licensing authorites require your social security number in your application. That is to check a national database to see if you have a license in another state. If it is found you have an active license in another jurisdiction, then you must surrender it and that state notified of the change. These policies have been done to prevent truck drivers and others with multiple driving violations from not having any additional licenses to keep driving despite suspension or revocation.

Yes. Makes more sense regarding my politics to vote here than in CA where I am in the majority

No, actually, you could not have.

Pretty slick. Makes sense since you break it down that way.
