A few months ago, we requested an absentee ballot. When it came, we printed off the appropriate material. We filled in all the dots, and filled out the appropriate information. I took the ballots in the pouring rain with a crying Renae to the US Embassy. Then we received word our ballots would not be counted because we'd sent them in wrong. So we went through the whole thing again. Jesse took them to the US Embassy last time.
If we can do that, then you can drive in your car to the nearest polling station and cast your vote. I promise, it's painless.
