Voting for US Candidates While in Mexico

Howdy! We're planning on spending a lot more time in Mexico soon and will be there during the next elections. How do y'all vote? We're from Seattle so are checking with King County Elections to see what they say. I just don't see an absentee ballot actually making it to me and getting back in time. Thanks!

I too am from Seattle and live here now. I vote online with that address I use for my mail which happens to be my sister. No ballots go to the address it is just the address that is used to determine the district I vote in.

Check with your local county elections department (see the link below). Even though they always mail me a ballot that always arrives in plenty of time to return it via mail, they also allow me to receive a ballot via e-mail that I print, fill out, sign a voters certificate, scan all and return them by fax. Easy peasy. The process will probably be similar for you.

I grew up knowing the importance of voting as my mother always worked at the polls. My husband and I have received ballots via email from our former county elections office since we moved here three years ago from Tucson, Arizona. We simply print them, vote, scan and email them back! We vote in every election, including primaries.
