On July 18, a Florida state court ruled that legislative candidates cannot be required to live in any particular district. This is because the State Constitution sets the qualifications for state legislature. Like the U.S. Constitution, the Florida Constitution’s residency requirement only applies to a candidate’s residence on election day. Therefore, because the filing date is several months before the election, there is in effect no residency requirement, because no one knows where any particular candidate will be living on election day, which is in the future. See this story. The headline implies the ruling only applies to write-in candidates, but it actually applies to all candidates, write-in or on the ballot.
