Stephen Bannon, the new chief executive of Trump's presidential election campaign, is allegedly registered to vote in Florida at a home in Miami-Dade County, which is vacant and set to be demolished. 

Bannon had rented the house for his ex-wife but he did not live there. She moved out earlier this year. 

“I have emptied the property,” Luis Guevara, the owner of the house, told The Guardian. “Nobody lives there … we are going to make a construction there.”

The Trump campaign declined to comment on Bannon's registration. 

Under Florida law, voters must be legal residents of the state where they are registered to vote. 

Submitting false information on Florida voter registration is a third-degree felony punishable by up to five years in prison, The Guardian notes.
