 Blast, wish I'd known about the FedEx - spent $20 on express mail.  The Aussie post better come through!

Greetings, Expats!

As some of you know, I will be traveling during the election, which prevents me from organizing a meetup around the event. However, two meetup members' organizations are promoting huge events that you are encouraged to attend, below. Also, I am including info on local poll closing times, FREE FedEx ballot mailing, and an interesting comparison between Aussie vs US elections.

Best,
Rebecca Kramer
