Absentee Ballot - 21 Days to Election Day

My absentee ballot came in late last Friday. It was mailed out today. Now I'm heading over to fivethirtyeigth.com to check out what Nate Silver and Sean Quinn have for me over the long weekend. If you have not yet received your absentee ballot, check out the Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB), an alternative, downloadable ballot which you can use to vote in General Elections for the offices of President/Vice President, U.S. Representative, and U.S. Senator - as well as the non-voting congressional representatives from the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, etc.

The FWAB is used by overseas voters, Foreign Service personnel and active duty uniformed services voters and their families and dependents who have requested, but not received their official absentee ballot in a timely manner.

And check out below the Overseas Vote Foundation's new Vote-Print-Mail Ballot system that is debuting in time for the 2008 Presidential Election. Late ballots are no longer a problem...
