I haven't voted since 1984. Yikes. That was the first year I was eligible and the last election I was physically living in the US. After I moved to Canada I didn't realize that I could still vote in the US elections. To be quite honest, the possibility never crossed my mind. During the 2004 elections there was a lot of media attention here to all of the Americans living in Canada and how they were voting.
So, I looked into it and what do you know? I can vote.
My absentee ballot arrived this week. I'm actually excited.
