Time is running out for USA-nians to Vote ... Get your ballots to the Consulate soon ...


Recommended Posts

If you plan to  turn in a ballot at the Consulate. There's a bit of time left ... yet, it depends what state you live in.

Many of the harshest US states require that ballots arrive by 10 days before election day - which is Oct. 29 this year.

The US Consulates aggregate ballots, and ship them to the US Embassy in Mex. City. The US Embassy in Mex. City aggregates ballots, and ships them by diplomatic pouch to the State Dept offices in Kansas City.

Then the State Dept offices in KC use the US mail to send your ballot to your particular state ...

Since US mail is taking 7 days to many locations around the USA, then adding in the Consulate / Embassy / State Dept loops, adds another week ... pointing to getting your ballot to a US Consulate no later than Oct 21 ... or sooner.
