Regain Your Freedom To Vote: How to Write-In Anyone - Leave The Country! (Or Military Anywhere)Submitted by We the People on Sat, 05/31/2008 - 12:53
U.S. citizens living outside of the United States and Uniformed Services anywhere & their families are free to vote for whomever they want by write in (see form below).
Yes, that's right, incredible as it might sound, leave the country, say to Mexico, Canada, China, or even Iran, and you re-gain your freedom to vote!
Or, if you are in the Uniformed Services you and your family have the freedom to vote for whoever you want no matter where you are.
If you are unfortunate to live within one of the United States then you are likely highly restricted on whom you can vote for. Generally, if you live within one of the United States you may only vote for either the Republican or Democratic nominee, or a nominee of another party. In order to write in whom you want, the candidate usually needs to register ahead of time as a write-in, and must have not already participated in the Primaries under another party; with regard to state sore-loser laws.
However, if you live in Mexico, Canada, China, Iran, or any other other country except for the United States, you can vote for whomever you want for United States President by writing them in.
Or, if you are a member or family member of any of the Uniformed Services, then you are free to vote, regardless of where you are residing.
All you have to do is place your vote Federally.
