With the U.S. presidential election coming up in November, you may be thinking you cannot vote while you are studying abroad.
Think again — you can vote when you are outside the US!
For most of you, this may be your first time voting and it is likely your first presidential election.
No matter who you're voting for, participate in the democratic process and vote!
Check out the Federal Voting Assistance Program, which provides absentee registration for overseas citizens (begin by selecting the state where you are currently registered to vote from the dropdown menu on the left).
You can also access information and registration at the U.S. Vote Foundation (choose "Overseas Citizen Voters").
