Subject: Mailed my ballot in weeks ago!

Any Americans living abroad should know that the US embassies handle election mail, too.

If you're registered to vote overseas through the FPCA, your local registrar of voters should have sent you a ballot envelope template to print out. Fill it out addressed to your registrar and you shouldn't have to pay for US postage.

Put that envelope inside a bigger envelope addressed to the US embassy, and they send it back to the US in their diplomatic pouch so that it can be counted in the election. No need to pay for more than just postage to the embassy!

(Also you could fax your ballot to the registrar, but I'm allergic to fax machines. Sorry Japan. :P)
