Ready or not, election season is upon us! And it's never been easier for Americans living abroad to vote—well, in some states. Tiffany is lucky as Arizona (where she's registered to vote) allows online voting through a secure portal. Other states have more complex and lengthy processes, but bottom line: no matter where you are registered to vote and no matter where you live now, all US expats can (and should!) vote from abroad!
On this episode, Tiffany and Katy discuss the ins and outs of voting by mail, whether you are doing it from your own US state or from a far-flung foreign country. Also, they both realize that neither of them has ever voted in person. Ever! Unless you count the times Tiffany has voted in Italy—she details what it's like to vote in Italian elections and how it's refreshingly old-school and surprisingly easy.
