What about you, Mary? Can you vote by absentee ballot? Where would your vote be counted in that case - DC?

Oh, yes. I voted by absentee a couple of weeks ago - the second district in Maine, our last place of residence.

I'm a nervous wreck today. We just can't go through another close election like 2000 and 2004 - people are so ready to move on and not be divided. *crosses fingers* All of Canada is watching - it really is an important election to a lot of people.

Ah, interesting - so it's the last residence where it counts. If I vote in the Romanian elections (also taking place this year), my vote will count in Bucharest, even though I still have an official residence in a different county (and it says so on my voter ID card). But we don't vote by absentee ballots, only in person (they'll have polling places in major US cities), so all ballots get counted at the Embassy and the result is sent to the State Dept., which is, of course, in Bucharest. At least, that used to be the case. They might have new rules now that about 10% of the adult population lives in other EU countries.

Not that I plan to vote, since I haven't followed any news, and my family have divergent opinions, so I can't count on them to guide my choices, either. :-) The US election is far more important to me right now. I hope there's a clear victor, too. If the result gets challenged in court, I don't even want to think what that'll do to the stock market.

I really should know this, but where in Canada are you now, Mary?

Corner Brook, Newfoundland. I keep moving east. I think I'll be in England before long. :)
