Rapper Jason "Fury" Flores is not a registered voter, according to city records.
Though Flores said he plans to run for mayor as an independent, he can't seek the city's top job unless he registers to vote.
The city charter says that "no person shall be qualified to be a candidate for any elective municipal office in the City of Bristol unless such person shall be an elector of said city."
To be an elector of the city means only that someone is registered to vote.
At this point, there are no declared candidates for mayor, though Republican Ken Cockayne is weighing a run and Democrat Art Ward may be eyeing another term.
