I moved during 2016 and had a home office in each location. Can I take the simplified home office deduction for one and itemized for the other?

This information is from IRS Publication 587. https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-prior/p587--2016.pdf
Electing the Simplified Method
You choose whether or not to figure your deduction using the simplified method each tax year. Make the election for a home by using the simplified method to figure the deduction for the qualified business use of that home on a timely filed, original federal income tax return. An election for a tax year, once made, is irrevocable.
