Absentee Voting in the U.S. Election from Mexico!

Yesterday, I cast my absentee ballot in the U.S. election. I thought I would share the process, so that others who are interested in doing so can as well!

I visited the website:  This is the website for Federal Voting Assistance Program. On the homepage, I chose the option for citizens, then selected my state, and from there went on to make my vote selections.

If you have any questions along the way, be sure to click the question marks or "Help" links for instructions. I found that these easily clarified any doubts that I had along the way.

After all info was entered, the website allowed me to print my ballot along with instructions on how to submit the ballot in my state. All that was left for me to do was sign and submit.

The methods of submission will vary from state to state. I am registered in North Carolina. In NC, I was able to submit my ballot via fax, email, or regular mail. I chose to fax my ballot, as the email option required me to send a hard copy of my ballot in via snail mail. However, many states don't have this requirement. So, be sure to read the submission instructions that print out, along with your ballot carefully.

Happy Voting!
