Important Sign on Ajijic Pier


Recommended Posts

If you haven't registered, do so SOON.  Even if you have, check with your local registrar to make sure you have not been purged.  The site shown on the banner suggests re-registering annually as in some states they can drop you every year.  

Hoping partisan posters can refrain; this is important for everyone.

I have noticed there are a couple other similar signs in Ajijic...perhaps a bit intrusive..if we can not think for our self's then perhaps we should not be on the roles...next we will have signs to remind us to go to the bathroom before we leave home

The signs are bilingual and note that it is in Spanish first.  Not aimed only at expats.  There are many dual citizens here, born in US of Mexican parents or naturalized in US and now living in Mexico.

We used fvap.org (Federal Voting Assistance Program) to register for Absentee Ballots (Overseas Citizen Voter).  It was simple.  We received emails to be able to vote in the  primary in the U.S. State where we registered already.  We signed up to receive ballots for the Presidential election by email also.   Non-partisan site which will direct you to the U.S. State website where you were last registered to vote.  You can also register to vote if you need to.

@ibarra     Yes, that's what we did.  It is usually better to register as a an Overseas Citizen than as an absentee  voter or Voter by Mail.  In our former state, we get our Overseas Citizen ballots by email  and can return them via fax.  When we were Voters-by-Mail. there was no email option; they were snail mailed to our TX forwarder and we had to snail mail them back.  Problem: their mailing date to us was just a few weeks before the election; with the lag times with all the forwarding, even though we mailed them back the day after we received them, they were late for one (local) election.

You go here to see the options you have with your state. https://www.fvap.gov/

I hope a certain anti-vote-by-mail constituency doesn't get hold of this photo.

 

The anti-vote-by-mail constituency for the most part are not against Absentee Voting, since each voter is authenticated by an established and time tested system. This is what the site on the sign is about. The vote-by-mail constituency advocates mailing out ballots willy nilly from ancient voter rolls where a large % are dead, in jail, moved or otherwise not available. These can be obtained in bulk, marked and signed and mailed back as official votes. Is this not an invitation to widespread voter fraud?
