The ballot was mailed to the rig I was working. I filled it out and put some Norwegian stamps on the ballot and it was on the next chopper to Stavanger and then mailed to the United States. All that was necessary for me to vote was inform my local voting precinct that I would not be in the USA for election day and tell them where to mail my absentee ballot.
Early voting is an open invitation to voter fraud!!!!!!!!!
We lived in Iran in the ‘70s, voted at the embassy; now, in good ol’Texas, we’re not physiclly able, but vote by absentee. Never had a problem; but then, we never tried to cheat either!
