Well, there goes my vote - off in the post!

It'll definitely reach my county's election office in time. If anything else should go amiss, I'm certainly not accountable! Sure beats 2000, though, when my absentee ballot, you know, never arrived.

Yeah, well, 2000 was a *special* election.

And that's putting it mildly.

P.S. A college here in Washington is advertising for a medievalist / poet -- do you want me to forward the job description on to you?

Oh! Actually, yes - please do!

Alrighty, I sent it to your email. Let me know if you don't get it!

Alas, I won't be able to apply for that: in addition to a Ph.D. in some subject of English, they also require a MFA in Creative Writing. Which I don't have.

Yes, it's definitely that time. It's less than a month away now.

I'm sure they wouldn't have appreciated my writing that all over the security envelope ;)

I haven't received my ballot yet, but to be fair, I was running really late on registering - I expect I'll have a ballot by the end of the week or early next - plenty of time!

I registered back in the spring, before the primaries. My husband, on the other hand, has let it go a bit too long - I don't think MA will process his paperwork, which was sent out just a couple of days ago *sigh*

So, even living in England you can still vote? Is it because you are still an American citizen? This is my first encounter with something like this, so I'm really intrigued as to how it works. Not to mention that you're freaking voting, which makes me very very happy. ♥

Yes: as long as you're a U.S. citizen, no matter where you live in the world, it is your right to vote (whether by absentee ballot or flying home to do it in person). The only way I'd be able to get UK citizenship is if I were to get a permanent job here, then live here for five years on the work visa and take the exams, do the paperwork, etc. Living here on a student visa does not count towards citizenship requirements. Which kind of sucks, because I've been living here for three years on various student visas. I'd have my time more than half put in, in the event that the outcome of this election really does make me decide I never want to look back *fingers crossed*

*crosses fingers as well* Thanks for the lesson babe, and here's to hoping!! >_

You're not registered in MA still, are you? I am, of course, going to vote for Obama, but as a resident of MA I am aware that it won't matter that much in the long run!

No - I'm registered in Pennsylvania, my home state. And I very much want my vote to count there!

I was a bit slow on my registering, but I know my form reached there before the deadline (tyvm, mail tracking!), so here I go, waiting for my ballot via email. :( It's my first time voting in the US elections, and it's pretty monumental, so asdhalgfølkg I'm excited to do my part if possible.
