Reading before about proving domicile in the US, someone had mentioned to get proof of voter registration.

My wife can't register to vote in her county without having lived there for x amount of months. Since we are moving together this might be a problem. Is there any other voter registration that would work for this.

We already have a bank account where we plan to move and setting up a rental lease won't be a problem.

I've never lived in the U.S. and was not registered to vote, I mean I suppose it would be good if you can accomplish it, don't see how you can if you aren't living in the U.S.

I mean really, you aren't trying to prove ties to the U.S. really and you can't prove you are physically domiciled, because you are not - what you are proving is that you 'intend to reestablish domicile no later than the intending immigrant'.

Personally I would focus more on having proof you are moving.

I thought this might have been an easy thing to obtain for my wife that would help. It really didn't make much sense to me.

I included proof of my voter registration, but I don't think they were too impressed by it. I've been registered to vote from my parents' address since I was 18 but in past elections I haven't qualified to vote in anything other than federal issues, because I was not a resident in that state and they knew it (I had had to give up my US drivers license so there was really no arguing it). I think the key info we provided to support my domicile reestablishment were the letter about rent from my parents and the letter from my employer acknowledging the move.
