Statewide Election, Monday May 26, 1845. To qualify to vote, the individual
named actually had to reside in the county in which he was registered to vote, and
he not only had to own land there, he had to demonstrate that it had been his
“place of permanent abode” for at least the six months preceeding the
election in which he offered to vote, and that he also had resided within the
Territory and State of Florida for the two years immediately prior to the
election of Monday, 26 May 1845. Also, only free white citizens of 21 years
of age and older could vote, and able-bodied men under age 45 were obliged to
become members of the State Militia before voting, and those who were
exempted were generally exempted because they were over the age of required
