The 2008 elections for President, Senate and Congress are just over a year away. Some of the Expats from the USA still maintain a connection either through taxes or property owned in their respective home State, you can still vote in US national , State and local elections while abroad via absentee voting. You may ask yourself why should I vote in an USA election since I now live in Italy. First of all, it's your right. Whomever you may vote for or whatever political party you may be associated with, you have the right to vote wherever you may live on the planet.
