You can use St. Brendans Isle in Florida as a mail box service, then have mail forwarded as necessary, they will also scan the mail so you can read it online. Wherever you get your drivers license, register to vote will be considered your primary residence, St. Brendans Isle is my residence, I use the address they provide (its not a mailbox, regular street/Apartment type) to register to vote, taxes, DL, etc
If you are going to leave a house sit empty, make sure the water is shut off. If you have some you trust live in the house, at least problems like a leaking roof, etc can be handled before it escalates into a major disaster.
