As an Ex-Pat, I have had the rare chance to vote. I watch elections back home while discussing issues with my brothers, feeling slightly disconnected from it all. Since I am not a citizen in the U.S. I feel beholden to the choices of those around me. My world, at the moment, is defined and controlled by political choices that I am not a part of.
That said, I have watched the last few elections and have noticed one common thread – they are a lot closer that we often think. Each vote does count. Your voice does matter.
