Voting From Afar – A Multistep Effort

  1. Congratulations on going thru the ordeal of voting. We too are voting on a paper “absentee” ballot in AZ. In GA, the electronic machines kept glitching to other candidates, not ones I had selected. So…I’ll always vote in a way that has a paper backup.

    1. I don’t blame you. I’m overwhelmed and horrified by the vicious, mean-spirited, cruel things people say on Twitter and Facebook. It’s awful! Three of my five siblings have closed their FB accounts and I’m seriously considering following suit. The problem is these platforms allow me to stay in touch with so many people I know around the world. I just don’t know what to do. I’m trying to find the right balance.

    1. Exactly!! (And, I have it documented in my blog for reference, an ulterior motive for writing it). Let’s hope the process doesn’t change in 4 years. Unless, of course, I can stroll in to the US Embassy and cast my vote and be done with it. 😁👍🇺🇸

  2. The people at the embassy were probably tickled by your enthusiasm! Good for you for voting – my soap box is that there are many places in the world where people don’t have the opportunity.

    1. Very true. It’s both an civic responsibility and a privilege. We should never forget that. (And as for the embassy folks…I think they were tickled, once they knew we weren’t there to storm the embassy!! 🤣)
