We need a new plan

So, today, February 6th, my mail-in ballot arrived for the primary. Since California voted yesterday with the other Super Tuesday primaries, I did not vote.
Hrmph.

I feel frustrated about this and worried that I won’t get the ballot in November either. I always vote. This is the first time I don’t and, for the first time in my life, it is actually very interesting vote in this primary.

My voter registration for my overseas ballot was mailed right after new years (from California, thanks to Adolfo’s brother). But, somehow I thought I had done something wrong, or I was supposed to not just register as an overseas voter, but also request my ballot. But, apparently they got it and understood that they needed to send me a ballot, slooooowly.

I have heard rumors of ex-pats being able to get their ballots by email or fax, so I’m going to have to look into that method – I think it depends on your voting state.

    have you looked at democrats abroad? maybe they can help. of course, this is assuming you’re democrat. which you might not be. but I’d be very surprised if you weren’t.

    I assume you read this…www.sos.ca.gov/elections/

    You need to file a complaint with the Sec. of State anyway to let them know this is happening. Who knows – it could turn out a whole lot o’ dems living overseas got their ballot via the slow boat.

    …first the problem with Della’s passport, now this…. and we (Mexicans) think we have a bad bureaucracy.

    Interesting….

    looks like I can request my ballot by fax. I just have to figure out if I can receive this fax at work without any difficulties.

    i just got a small envelope in the mail from you last week and we assumed it must be an invitation. But no, just a Christmas card mailed eight weeks ago.
