Tuesday: voters from several states can still vote via the US Embassy here

It’s too late for you ballot to get to the States via the embassy’s diplomatic pouch in time for Election Day, but in some states what counts is when the ballot is sent, not when it is received.

Tuesday, last day to vote via the US Embassy’s free diplomatic mail

only useful if you vote in Florida, North Carolina, California, Colorado, Arizona or Wisconsin

Updating a Florida election law change:

FL rule for overseas voters
This law went into effect in July, as a little-noticed add-on to other things.

What happened here was that the State of Florida changed its rules for overseas voters in July and the state-by-state online voting guides upon which The Panama News and Democrats Abroad relied didn’t catch the change. But now we did and you can vote tomorrow by sending your ballot through the American Embassy in Clayton before 3 p.m.

The federal write-in ballot:

To vote from abroad in any state you must have registered to vote and requested a ballot, but if your ballot never came you can download, print out, fill out and mail in a Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot.
