Voting from abroad -- simple tool for U.S. absentee ballots.


Now that we are close to having official "tickets" for both parties, I thought I'd share a simple absentee ballot wizard I found online for all those U.S. citizens interested in voting in the upcoming presidential election. Also, click HERE for official United States government information on citizens voting from overseas. Details vary by state of residence, so I am not going to attempt to put comprehensive information here. Additionally, non-partisan information can be found at overseasvotefoundation.org.

Even though I am sickened when I read various boards reflecting election thoughts such as ... "I don't care what the Polls say, America will NEVER vote black" and very happy to be living here in France during the lead-up to November 4th, I still intend to vote from abroad and register my position on who I think should be leading MY country.

Because yes, it still is my country. No matter how tarnished she has become.
