Absentee Ballots

Here is another little piece of trivial pursuit information that you may never need.

In 1997 the Texas legislature passed a bill that allows an absentee ballot to be cast from space.

Now how cool is that? Every vote counts and I guess this is what democracy is about. Simply. making sure that no matter where you are in the universe you can exercise your democratic right to vote for the candidate of your choice.

I know longer harbour any dreams of being an astronaut :D
