    I read through the bill quickly, and I can't see provision that states the property has to be a minimum size.

    What's to stop an enterprising right winger from buying acre of land, dividing it into 10,000 parcels, incorporating 10,000 companies, and selling each company a parcel? Each company assigns its vote to the same fellow, and voila! 10,000 votes.
